G'day fellas.
Still not too cold here on the south coast NSW. 8C when I came up from the shed at midnight. Haven't had a frost on the low ground yet (only 3 or 4 last winter). Bloody windy the last two days with one gust here measured 130kph.
Snow pretty well everywhere above 1000 meters. The kids reported snow at Lithgow, something to look forward to when Deb & I move up there.
Cheers

Just ICY rain & windy here for the last couple of days... we've even got the wood fire lit @ night. It's been too bloody cold to get out in the shed to work on bikes..
At least the feeling is coming back into my thumb I nearly chopped off ..  *eek*

We had better be careful Woz. Our Winter is better than some members Summer. Don't want to lose our He Man status!
