Finally! We had our first proper dump of snow of the year overnight, waking to a few inches of the white, powdery stuff. Not as much as last August, but as you'll see below, so so pretty. Flakes were still softly falling for much of the morning. Some friends brought their daughter up to our place to play in the snow before school and our dogs showed their Swiss breed heritage by going completely nuts in it. I haven't let the chooks out today. They are locked in the hen house with a warming garlic mash to eat. Speaking of garlic, that's what is growing in the raised garden bed pictured below...
We live well above the fog line and just below the snow line here in the hills above the Huon. If snow is forecast down to 600 metres we usually get some, even though we are only at 450 metres. Just a few hundred metres down the road, the snow runs out and everything is green again. We definitely have our own special micro-climate up here.
How's this week's wild Tassie weather been at your place?
