Play with me....
Lets just all pretend that the last post here was last week
not last week and one year ago!
I'm back to share with you the beauty that surrounded us here one Friday morning last month.
For one day it seemed like the world just stopped!
School buses were cancelled, roads were closed and we awoke to this,
It was just Magical
Try wearing plastic bags over your gloves, it saves a whole lot of soggy gloves and keeps your hands warm and dry.
Unfortunately, there was also a serious side to all this snow fun
A worrying weather warning was put out from the Bureau of Meteorology for this area just like the one forecast here again today.Thank Goodness it was not that extreme (nor is it today).
Warning to Sheep Graziers

Areas likely to be affected include the Australian Capital Territory, Southern Tablelands, South West Slopes, Riverina, Central West Slopes & Plains, Central Tablelands and Snowy Mountains forecast districts.
There is a high risk of losses of lambs and sheep exposed to these conditions.
By lunchtime the sun had broken away from the clouds it's warmth set in and the snow just melted away. It was gone as quickly as it had came in. The sheep were all still OK, just cold!
This little one unable to stand and suffering from mild hypothermia was quickly brought in and warmed by the fire for a couple of days.
She's doing well now, Part of the family. We've named her Lily and she's running around
the back yard with her new friends Lucy and Laura.
Today there has been a few snow flurries flying around, mostly rain though and it Freezing....
I'm keeping toasty by the fire and enjoying some me time typing away on the computer.
People often ask how could I have moved from sunny Qld to Orange NSW and how do I cope with the weather? Well it's this beauty of the cold that I admire. I think we live in a very lovely spot,
A born & bred Queenslander, I could never of imagined it being like this.Now I can't wait for those beautiful spring blossoms to pop out, there just around the corner.
Bye, I will be back... Promise...
