Last night Tata kept commenting on how cold it was. We had managed to go a few days without any heating on in the house, but around 7pm yesterday we could feel a real drop in the temperature – and this is when Tata mentioned how cold he felt. So for the first time in days we put the heating on, to try and warm the house. We also decided that we would leave it on overnight (even though it can cost us a bomb) as it was far to cold to turn it off and the extra money we would save was not worth the chance in any of us getting sick.
Anyway, this morning we realised just how cold it had become overnight as we awoke to snow all around us. When we got up and looked out from our veranda, towards the river and mountains, we could see snow on all the mountain tops, especially Mount Dromedary. Unfortunately from where we live we face the wrong direction to see Mt Wellington, but the children and I did go for a drive today around 2pm and checked out the snow on top and took some pictures. I will try to add them here a little later.
Currently it is 6 degrees Celsius here in Hobart, with an expected low of 2 overnight, with more rain and cold expected tomorrow. So no doubt the snow will be thicker on top of the mountains tomorrow when we get up again..
Definitely not like spring time here!
