Snow was created by Hamish Carr
For the record, the first significant snowfall was 1mm on the 18th December. Since then we have had continual and increasing snow cover. This afternoon (4/1/10) I went out with a ruler and measured the depth of snow in our "front field" near the Kinnaird Road. It is fairly open there and not much drifted - the depth in most places was about 7" but in some places it was 9". Under the windbreak there was only about 2-4".

It has only been above freezing a couple of times since then, with +1 degree on 30th December and +0.5 on 29th December.
