The third day of a Tasmanian 'summer' and this is what I experienced at our fishing cabin in the Central Highlands this past weekend.
4-5 inches of snow everywhere and on our walk in the snow you could hear and see huge branches crack and fall from the trees under the weight of the snow.
This is the view from our back door, I love how the snow is clinging to the outside wall and the trees were so pretty.
Of course, it wouldn't be fun if you didn't take a walk in the snow so we donned layers of clothes, beanies, gloves and walked up the road in vehicle tracks, although these disappeared half way around our 'block' walk and then the walking got hard. I even had to take off my glasses as the snow covered them making it impossible to see where I was walking.
We weren't sure we were going to get home yesterday but when the power went out and I couldn't get any sewing done, we packed up and drove in convoy with 6-8 other vehicles down the mountain, passing cars stuck in the snow as they attempted to get up the mountain. Crazy !
I did get some hand sewing done in the evenings and another dozen or so bags made during the couple of days I spent inside because of the rain and snow. I did spend one day sitting on the verandah on a very warm day stitching and reading - such a contrast in the weather conditions but not unusual for this time of the year.
Happy Quilting !
