It was just snowing in Dickson/Ainslie

The canadian standing next to me said “You guys act like it’s the first time you’ve ever seen snow!”

What’s Your opinion?

Years ago, we were among the first people to move into Scullin. The school hadn’t opened, so I was at first grade in the Page Primary School. One day it started snowing and all us kids were looking out the window and getting all excited. The teacher got angry and said: “anyone would think you’ve never seen snow before.” Well durrr – we were 5 years old!

About never seeing snow before.

When we were in the States my sister, who was about 8 or 9, came sprinting in one day exclaiming, ‘There’s tissue paper falling out of the sky!’

Mael, Jervis Bay would be just fine mate….

AD, you still didn’t say whether or not you cavorted?

And she’s will never forget it. Hehehehehe….

Public Servants + FNQ Hicks = (shudder)

I love the weather but Cairns is all a bit touristy and bumpkin-esque.

How about the Government purchases an island off the coast of FNQ just for the Public Servants? Would be full of cardigans, Camrys and long lunches in no time at all!

The Fairfax press have a good picture of parliament house and the Brindabellas here and some lame pictures from Canberra Suburbs here.

The weatherman yesterday mentioned that it was possible that it could snow in melbs CBD…. which would be insane…. Mael – I have often had that thought – as mentioned in previous posts I would like the refurbishment of civic to include massive heaters and other devices which would turn the place into a tropical paradise (everyday 40c+ now that gets my boat rocking…….

I propose that the entire Australian Public Service moves to Cairns or some other temperate place so that we can all move from this forsaken open freezer.

Yes…but only in bits of Melbourne..& not much..certainly not in the CBD.

Google Earth tells me that Tidbinbilla Range is the big daddy to the right of Mount Stromlo, when looking south. It always has dark clouds touching the tip in a most ominous fashion.

DAMN! I should have stopped to get a shot.

Hopefully theres still some white this afternoon, as the mountains always look better going home rather than heading in to work.

justbands 8:39 am 11 Aug 05

Can you post up some pics? I’ve a friend in Melbourne who wants to see them…she’s never seen snow!

Got one of the Brindies this morning. Mt Taylor had little spots, as did Mt Arrawang and the Hills behind looked great.

I also want to add that on the long haul down to Tuggeranong from the city last night I was so surprised and stoked to see no f*ckwittery on the roads.

Is there a change in the air?

justbands 8:34 am 11 Aug 05

Anyone get any decent snow photos?

RandomGit 8:18 am 11 Aug 05

Gots me some snow in the back yard and the front yard. Wanted to get a photo of the Brindabellas this morning but didn’t feel like pulling over, I was having a really good run. Couldn’t see enough white there to warrant it anyway.
