Magical Day

Posted by AJ Blythe at Sunday, July 21, 2013
We'd heard there was a chance of snow above 700m for today. The kid have never seen snow and since moving to Canberra have been excited that they probably would get the chance. So, believing the glass-half-full version of the weather, we got up early and headed 25 minutes down the road to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.

We could see snow capped peaks as we drove closer and, sure enough, as we drove through the Reserve we found snow (in fact it was still falling when we got there). There wasn't a lot on the ground but there was enough for snow ball fights, toboganning, and a very Aussie snowman (it's eyes were kangaroo poo). We had about 2 hours of snow play before the sun came out and quickly melted our playfield.

We spoke to a ranger who said in the 15 years he'd worked there it was the lowest level he'd seen snow. Pure magic :)

Anita,
Looks like a sensational day. We had a similar day when it snowed in Glen Innes and we drove down to play - had an absolute ball!

It was, Fi. did you have your Fur-kids with you? How did they find the snow? We were in a nature reserve so our very unimpressed pooch was left behind.
