Lots in the news about the wintry conditions in the Northern hemisphere, with the cold weather and snow snarling life for many people. Trains, planes and automobiles are not getting their way; they’re having to bow to the superiority of that white stuff.
Hah! It’s summer in Australia, right? (Summer begins on December 1, by the way.) Yes, and it’s time to romp on the beaches, right? And celebrate Christmas with at least 30 degree (Celsius) temperatures, right?
Wrong, at least down here in Victoria. I awoke to the following news on the radio “Light falls of SNOW (!) have been reported at Mt Buller” This is one of the ski areas of Victoria, about 3 hours drive from Melbourne. But, this is NOT the ski season.
Makes me glad I made this cozy, down filled purchase yesterday.
