It is freezing here in Canberra. Cold enough in fact that it has been snowing a short time ago, and I thought summer was just around the corner. Today is looking as bleak as any winters day. Snow in Canberra is a rare event, especially in mid-October when we should be getting warmer weather. If it is this cold it would at least be nice if we had some actual snowfalls that settled on the ground. At the moment it is melting on contact with the ground.
