Rumours highway will close soonish

Not going to happen I think. Turned wet for a bit but back to the drier stuff now apparently, still coming in. on my way home again so I reckon I'll be walking through it from the station - didn't expect that, that's the most consistent snow in quite a while I should think.

You should still have a bit of snow around tomorrow morning..will be icy as fook. Will all clear up by mid morning tomorrow though.

This is where a manual car and not a shitty automatic comes in useful.

I did my driving test in the middle of a snow storm in the 90's :D I passed anyway.

Actually..if the skies do clear tonight I reckon you are going to get some closed roads up the mountains. Going to be so icy. If this was the UK the council gritter trucks would be going all night.

still snowing. only very lightly, but it's there.

Do a dashboard cam thing of your drive from Blackheath to Lithgow tomorrow :) Would be interesting.

Had to buy some warm socks today.

I encountered a handful of kids in short sleeved cotton school shirts today. With nothing over the top of them.

:wacko::wacko:

well I tried but my rig failed. in truth not much excitement to see, lots of fog about so the few snatches of snow covered ridges probably wouldn't have come up too well anyway and the snow up at mt vic wasnt quite is good as bh anyway by the looks. Any snow in lithgow has gone. a little on the tops of the hills but you can barely see them for the fog anyway.

Heh it was fine. 

I was up and down like a fiddlers elbow today for various reasons so saw some different snow all about. There'll be some places up around Bell that still have some tomorrow morning potentially.

Got a good view of Hampton from up that way too, lots of cover. a mobile doesn't do it justice at that depth of field, got a snap with the real camera though.

They have arrived. They are warm. Feel like I should have got some gloves as well.

What colour and do they have a jazzy pattern?

Today I am wearing pink socks...

These are my socks. There are many like them, but these are mine. My socks are my best friends. I must look after them like they will look after me. Without me, my socks are useless. Without them, I am useless.
