We’ve had people from Bungendore phone in saying they are snowed into their houses with 6 inches of snow in their yards, and people from Wamboin reporting driving in through the snow.
Any more reports – and any photos?

Roads closed due to heavy snowfalls, police urge caution – Bungendore/Queanbeyan
14 June 2007
Monaro Local Area Command officers are urging motorists to delay their travels following heavy snowfalls which have resulted in a number of minor collisions and road closures. The continuing snowfalls have forced the closure of the Kings Highway between Queanbeyan and Bungendore. Captains Flat Road is also closed from the Kings Highway to Braidwood. Snow fall and ice is making travel on roads in the area treacherous. There have been numerous minor motor vehicle accidents on the Kings Highway within the ACT. These incidents are being investigated by the Australian Federal Police. A grader is currently being used to remove snow and ice from the roads. Other road closures include: • Jerangle Road between Captains Flat and Bredbo, and • Briar Sharrow Road. Road blocks and closures are being managed by the RTA and SES. Police expect the Kings Highway to be re-opened later today.
