Snow is so rare in Ballarat it is exciting when it falls. Snow has fallen at least once every spring since I moved here, and I have been hoping to see it this spring too.
Sadly, this year the snow fell on Mt Buninyong, a small mountain just 15 minutes away - you can easily walk up it - and by the time I heard about it, it had melted. So I didn't get to walk out in the snow this year, or watch it swirl past the window or gather it up in my hands in wonder.
I am including a link to some pictures of the snow on Mt Buninyong because I use this blog to make notes for my own almanac of the seasons that make up a Ballarat year. Spring snow is one of our seasonal pleasures.
