I have missed a couple of Which Ways lately because I’ve not really been anywhere except to Hobart and back. Earlier this week we had some big falls of snow right down to sea level and the buses didn’t run for two days because of ice and snow on a section of the Huon Highway. It didn’t snow much at my place so I was champing at the bit to get out and see some snow; and to take Hubby his clean laundry of course.
Vince’s Saddle is the highest point on the Huon Highway at 376 metres. I’ve seen snow up there before but only once since I’ve lived here has the road been closed because of it. It was not a nice day, there was drizzle, fog and in patches it was still snowing but the bus made it up and over the hill and down into Hobart. A lot of the snow from the previous two days had melted by this time. I took a few pictures from the bus. Please excuse the reflections.
Mount Wellington was so completely obscured by cloud that if a giant had come and taken it away we would not have known. I had to go to Hobart again the next day with more laundry and the clouds were gone. Mount Wellington was still there!
