Snow!

I have had 3 colds back to back and it is all I can do to drag myself to work and back... bleah.

In other news - we live an hour from the snow! It tends to melt within a day or two, but a few weekends back the timing was right and the kids saw snow for the first time.

They thought it was awesome!!!!











Even away from the snow it has been rather chilly. The temp drops below freezing most nights, and on the weekend there was frost in the shadows and ice on puddles at midday.

We don't mind, as we have a very cosy house and central heating. Cars are heated, offices are heated and daycare is heated. It's a lot like a UK winter really, except that the sun comes out most days.

Wow, King is nearly as big as Princess!

Amazing how the weather can be different from Sydney to Canberra. Meanwhile, I have a friend in Adelaide and no reports of snow at all. :)

Hi Suzanne, nice to hear from you!

Sydney and Adelaide are on the coast, which makes a huge difference to temperature. Canberra is a long way (3 hours fast driving) inland, and near the mountains - much colder and not far from the snow.
