Azdude....you could come to Oz and be like me...I've never even seen snow falling....not in 62 years...[e digicons]
You're in the wrong part of Oz, then. Though I saw snow falling plenty of times when I was a kid growing up in England, I've seen it falling here in Oz, too.
I've seen snow in the Stanthorpe region a few times, though it usually doesn't settle for long there and often melts on contact with the ground. Also saw snow falling at Amberley [where the RAAF base is] one year, but again it didn't settle.
I also saw snow falling in the Blue Mountains and South-West NSW back in the 70's. It settled there, though, and I would have tried my hand at some skiing if my boss at the time hadn't said: "Break yer neck and I'll be looking for somebody else to do your job."
Yup, that sobering thought put paid to that idea... not so much at the thought of a broken neck, etc... I just didn't want to lose my job, which I loved, moving people and getting to travel all over the country doing it.
The other place I saw snow was when I lived in Tassie, on the Central Highlands; Mount Wellington and Mount Barrow near Launceston. So yeah, Paul, you need to get out and about more... perhaps even go see Tassie when the snow is falling.
