Well, a common quiz game has the question "which continent is it that never has snow". Everyone is supposed to answer "Africa" forgetting or not knowing about Kilimanjaro, while Australia is indicated as the right answer. So from now on the correct answer will have to be "Is the moon a continent?":-)

Great shots of a subject I like better as photos than in real life!

Thanks for posting these BeachBoy. It's a reminder of what I'll be facinghere in Buffalo, New York about 5 months from now. Except I'll be trying to manuever a car through it instead of skis.

This is what's great about this forum - the international participation and sharing of cultures, climates, geography, architecture, etc. etc.

Maybe a dumb question but is it safe to say that there is nowhere in Australia that gets snow at sea level?

Wow, I didn't know that there was any snow in Australia, how fun. You can enjoy the snow and then run away when you get tired of it.

Nice shots!

Snow in Australia? Goes to show how little I know! Love the pictures! I'd much rather be there right now than here. I don't knwo which is worse - 95+ degrees Fand thunderstorms (and humidity) or 105 F and low humidity. Given a choice and a warm jacket I'll take the snow.
