Some great falls of snow

Published by:

Michael,

I saw the pictures and yes that certainly does make the trip worthwhile given you observed snow on the ground and falling at the time - a daytime event. And to think I have not even bothered to venture up to the Oberon area to observe any of the snow that has fallen this season:) Some great falls thus far.

Terrific snow chase Ben Lomond on the Northern Tablelands

Published by:

Hi Jimmy and all reading this - yes, managed to sneak in a terrific solo snow chase to Ben Lomond on the Northern Tablelands. AT least 3cm snow on the ground with snow falling the whole 1.5 hours I was in that area. More details in the forum thread: http://www.australiasevereweather.com/forum/index.php?topic=462.0

Was a good test for my car as it was serviced on Tuesday. Drove 685km in 9 hours and felt no tiredness at all. I guess the thrill of the chase helps, but I love driving in that part of NSW.

Snow on the ground at Oberson

Yes there definitely has been a fair bit of snow and even this morning  - snow is persisting in the Oberon vicinity. Speaking to Nick Moir this morning, he awoke to snow on the ground at Oberson and also suggests that snow lay on higher peaks of the region near Hartley and obviously it was snowing heavily at Shooters Hill. So have fun on the Northern Tablelands - hope you can get some action.

We awoke to a spectacular sunrise this morning and the cloud band extends all the way to southern regions of NSW from Sydney. I have a dinner tonight catch up with some old friends.
