You've probably heard that Australia's done a bit of a flip weather-wise. Up here in Queensland, we've cooled just a little, while everyone down south in Victoria and Tassie are melting in a heat wave where +40 degree heat is far more rare.
This was the snow that I saw in my November Tassie trip, and this might be pitiful snow by most standards, but it was my first snow so I was like a giggly kid.
I loved the crispy, cold air. And I'm jealous of all the gorgeous winter snow pics on overseas blogs. Yes, it's summer here, but of course I wish it was winter. And I wish for snow! But I will have to follow the snow down south this winter because we certainly won't see a speck of it here in Queensland. (There'll be plenty of fog though - I love fog too. And rain. Lightning. Stormy grey skies. The generally non-Queenslandy stuff.)
So here's my little snowy photo in the absense of any artwork. I was looking after our Shadow today after he took a major stack on the rocks while chasing the neighbour's horse down the fenceline. No broken bones, but lots of cuts and grazes. He's missing some fur in a few patches now and he's not nearly as happy as he is in the picture I'm (still!) drawing of him.
But that's just what you get for chasing things that are bigger than you, without watching where you're going!
