Australia Day - A holiday for some

After a full-on Friday in Thredbo with 88mm of rain and winds up to 95kph, the long weekend began with sun and blue sky, a light breeze and an early morning wind chill of -7C. It was also another beautiful day in Thredbo for Australia Day with clear, blue, sunny skies and low temps. The crowds have rushed to Thredbo with many enticed by the "I climbed Kosi on Australia Day" theme. Sounds like an Aussie sort of thing to do.

Some how I've missed Australia Day and the entire long weekend whilst I spend my time taking photos, cataloguing photos and prepare endless logs and reports for insurance companies that argue over who will pay for something that occurred somewhere else but left me as the worst off victim of them all. No one will take responsibility and very few will offer advice leaving me with the cost and mess of a double disaster for which I haven't a clue what to do with.

Anyway, as a break away from insurance issues and being unable to bring you any local photos, I have put together a selection of photos sent by Rosco over the past weeks from Japan where they are experiencing an excellent winter. I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks Rosco. I'm also hoping to get some snappies from Traktorman soon.
