It is bloody freezing today with a cruel wind coming from the west. It's snowing at Orange and Oberon, and since Oberon is just at the base of the mountains, I reckon we are next! I saw some beautiful footage last night on ABC news of the snow at Oberon. White countryside with black kangaroo shapes hopping along as well as some pigs running through.

In June 2007 it snowed and the highway was closed to Sydney. I wonder if it will happen this year?
