Above: Snow storm brewing at 3 sisters, Blue Mountains, Katoomba, the same snow storm I got caught in outdoors for the first time.  Note it looks like a normal rain shower - only it is thicker and heavier.  Boy it (the ice) hit me very hard, and very cold as well!

More photos will be put at a later date.
