Quoting luvthabumps: Was super cold here today but there has been some melt off the balcony rail - could have been a bit of wind effect though. JNats mogul comp was tough going but am a very proud Dad reporting the jnr jnr LTB is keeping up the family tradition and pulled one out of the bag (with a smidgin of good luck thrown in) to win the Boy's Youth Division today. He is sitting the couch with his medal round his neck, his $200 giant cheque next to him :eek: and fully immersed in Minecraft. parents are exhausted, drinking French bubbles and staying an extra night.
Yip yip what a trip, well done to all the bumps. :cool::)

My children's pulk got a workout at Buller today :) Admired by many, apparently. Apparently dirt and stones showing through on the XC trails due to this morning's rain.

Quoting SkiMun: It's been one of 'those' days up here. Looks like more of the same tomorrow.
According to mountainwatch, it's gonna snow tomorrow and for a few days after that so let's hope he's right!!

Quoting luvthabumps: Nothing special - Holman iWeather. Bunnings maybe $50? Not bad though. Set altitude and it calculates pressure shows rel humidity in and out. I suspect running a bit warm on ext temps as its sitting on a screw in the cladding so picking up a bit of warmth from the building. Might try and get it attached to the balustrade at some stage.
Similar to ones I have at factory and home I got from Jaycar.

Quoting absentskier: At least you're not paying over $1,000 a night (and that's just accommodation) for your only weekend of skiing this year like some people I know!!
Quoting absentskier: Who would do that?
Couple of friends of mine did that this weekend. I got a message from them saying 'at least we booked in to a nice hotel since we're spending a lot of time here'!

Quoting Tanuki: Who would do that?
Plenty of people. Irregular skiers with kids with a lot of commitments in Melbourne every weekend. They don't have the luxury of choosing to go up at the last minute.

Fair point - I'll cop that. Just setting up my new weather station and preparing my cassoulet for tonight's dinner for 12 then off the the Ski Patrol White Out party. Life's not too bad really and if starts snowing soon all will be forgotten.

Quoting wolly: Quite often there is rain before a significant snowfall
Always gets worse before it gets better.
