    Bought a couple of cases of wine the other day to take up to the Lodge.
    Now that's being prepared, just in case there's no snow in 97 days.

    Am heading down as I do each year, during the autumn (May) snows to do a lodge working bee. You get the feeling set in then. Anticipation builds.

    79 days 15 hours 32 mins 50 seconds...at this time. Taken from the Hotham site counter.

    I wonder what is with the 360 camera, if it will be ice free, and if it will update regularly - could see same in other locations to good affect as well.

    ...a pic of what is to come...doing anything for lines on opening weekend
