I missed the (moderately) heavy snowfall on Sunday as I was in Sydney for the day, but patches of snow lingered in the garden all week, so I felt that I hadn’t missed much.
It has been desperately cold all week with light snow falling on most days.
But last night mother nature decided to give us her best snow performance for many years:
And while it may look pretty, it has already caused some problems.
Broadleaf evergreens aren’t really compatible with blizzards.
In the still and silent cold of heavy snow, I can hear many of the Eucalyptus trees crashing down around town…!
If you are in Sydney, sadly you won’t be able to come up to see the snow as the roads are all cut and rail services are affected. These snow-falls are what the Blue Mountains used to get up until about the 1980s.
Happy snow day 🙂
