Keep them coming Toshi. These snowscapes are a real novelty to us Antipodeans.

Ollie

PS. Interested to know what Canadians regard as "mild" winter temperatures?

Thanks so much, Ollie. Anything above freezing is mild. On the Prairies it's not unusual for the temperature to stay at -25C or colder for weeks at a time. I can remember in the winter of 1968/69 in Edmonton, Alberta whereI grew up the temperature stayed below that for over a month, and that's not even considering the windchill, which made it feela lotcolder.:cart:In the Okanagan Valley where I live now the climate'spretty temperate, it rarely gets much colder than -5 or -10C. I think the average day-time temperature in January is around-3. Right now it's an overcast 5 degrees C and the snow's melting fast.

In the words of a late Australian, crikey!... anything above freezing is mild! Most Australians regard Canberra as bloody cold. We're in the highlands and away from the coast, so we get a lot colder than most places Oz in winter (about the same as Hobart which is a lot further south), but even then -5C is a seriously cold winters night, and the temp usually makes double figures during the day. But then we take the good with the bad - we're in the middle of the worst drought since European settlement, some say 1000 years. We'll have Stage 4 water restrictions probably within a month, which means no watering of lawn or garden allowed. :sad:

Hi, Ollie:-)

Australia's drought has been making the news here lately, especially thoseawfulwildfires. We had a similar experience here in '03 when a hot, dry summer combined with severe water shortages caused wildfires that destroyed many homes and almost burned an entire town. Hopefully, things will improve for you soon.

We live with water restrictions too. Lawn watering isn't allowed in the summer because normally there's next to no rain.:sad:The Okanagan Valley is semi-arid and relies on runoff fron melting snow in the surrounding mountains for most of it's water. The snowpack up there is about 15% heavier than normal right now, so it looks like water shortages won't be much of an issue this summer, depending on how hot and dry it is.If it melts too fast, and that could happen because it's significantly warmer than normal, flooding could be a problem. What's a person to do?aranoid:
