Let it Snow!

We woke up this morning to the most amazing sight and one which I have been dreaming of for more than 10 years now, that being to be here when it snowed. Well it finally happened! We always were at work in Sydney or down the mountain too far away to come up in time.

We had a really good fall. I think it was about 6 to 7 inches thick and so soft and powdery. Apparently, it snowed as far down as Lawson and that doesn't happen very often.

The house and front garden. Hope the plants survive!
Two hardy Mountain Lowrys
Mt York Rd with no footprints or car tracks.

The big shed from the back.
After a while, we went for a walk down towards Mt York to have a look at the view from Bardens Lookout.

This shows the view toward Victoria Pass and Hartley.

Slightly further west
and further west again.
On the way back the sun came out and clumps of snow started dropping from the gumtrees. It was so bright in the sunshine.

When we got back Mike got up on the roof to sweep off the solar panels. It think it will take a while for the snow to melt and disappear. Its still freezing outside but nice and cosy inside in front of the fire.

Snow falls like this only happen once, maybe twice, a year and this is the first time we have been here to see it falling and settling. Such a treat! Now I just want it to happen again!

  1. What a beautiful winter wonderland!! It's so lovely you finally saw your home and Mt Vic covered in snow. Were you tempted to make a snow man?
