Widespread snow and frost in Victoria caused by global warming? No, it’s called winter and August is traditionally the coldest time, even though it varies from year to year. Here the chickens are carefully jumping over the frozen grass and trying- for the first time- hot porridge. Their drinking water was frozen last night.
No snow where we are because fo the low elevation – not much wind either and the sun is getting stronger, which makes the daytime feel quite balmy despite only reaching 11 or 12 degrees (celsius). But it looks like we just had our coldest night of the year, reaching down to almost -4.
This lucky shot of two kangaroos caught out in the snow was taken by Christie Panozzo .
It was taken at Federation University in Ballarat two days ago.
