  1. Not quite a blizzard, but the snow keeps falling on Australia’s mountains – or ‘hills’ as we New Zealanders call them. Thunder/snow & hail today, freezing tomorrow, snow again Wednesday 1 Nov, freezing Thursday, then snow again Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Unprecedented! Since the last time, anyway.
