EIGHT IS ENOUGH

EIGHT IS ENOUGH

Tuesday, July 17, 2007

A day at the snow

Alarm goes off at 6am Sunday "sigh just another 20 minutes I say" next minute blankets were thrown off (now I no khow how the kids feel when i do it to them)

Leaving Melbourne was 5c (41F) was expecting a top temp of 12c (52F) for the day.

First stop petrol, followed by a debate on the direction we were going.. I lost, if we went my way we were heading to the beach dont think we would have found much snow there..lol

2nd stop - Breafast at MacDonalds

3rd stop - Buy fresh rolls for lunch (salad and meat prepared the night before)

**********


Fourth Stop - Marysville last town you go through till you start climbing the mountain
The kids getting all decked out in there Waterproof Snow gear.


Getting Closer - temp had dropped to 2c (36F) was beautiful road side views couldnt see much past there as it was very foggy as you can see in the photo.

Then we Arrive Temp has dropped to -1.5c (27F), It was snowing when we arrived which i was very pleased to see as I've never experienced it. The kids had a great day as did Colin & I.

Was hard work walking up the slopes, was a great day but was glad when we were in th car with the heaters on.



Cool Slideshows!

    seems so strange to see you in snow gear when we are sweltering here.
    Kind of cooled me down a bit. Thanks,

    Hi Joanne ~~ I reckon it is quite cold enough without going looking for snow. Looks like you all had a great time and that is the main thing.
    Thank you for your comment about our Shepp cows. And I hope you will have a closer look next time.
    Take care, Love, Merle.

    What wonderful photos ... looks like a magical day. We were thinking of going to Lake Mountain yesterday (22nd), but in the end didn't ... shame.
    Might do a trip to Donna Buang, though, just for the heck of it !!
    Have a wonderful week.
    Take care, Meow

    Hi Joanne, of course you are Little Jen or LJ to me.
    You guys had a fun time in all that snow. Some really good pictures too.
    I do like the picture book, it really saves page space and we get to see so much more.
