What a great winter’s day in Tasmania.
It’s what I’d call a ‘Windows 95’ day. A bright blue sky interspersed with light fluffy clouds. A gentle breeze is blowing and the temperature is about 11o C.
Where I work at Latrobe, all the mountains to the South have received a dusting of ‘icing sugar’ in the last 24 hours. In some areas someone has been a bit heavy handed with the shaker.
You may be surprised to know that areas of Australia do receive winter snow. The wilderness areas of Tasmania get heavy snowfalls during winter. Snow fell over the weekend down to 350 metres above sea level and some remote roads were cut for a few hours. Victoria and New South Wales both have extensive ski fields in the highlands and they may be small by Northern hemisphere standards I believe they offer quality skiing.
I still needed a light jacket for my lunch time walk, but it was very relaxing after polishing off a serve of savoury Indian style rice with a vegetable curry. Dried and fresh fruit and brewed coffee.
I don’t want to work its too nice a day.
