Our first snowfall for the year
Macquarie Island received its first snowfall on Tuesday night. This is rather late in the year, and many people here had started to wonder if we are really in the subantarctic at all. As a result, cameras were out in force on Wednesday morning to record the scene. It didn't last long on the ground around station, with air temperatures still around two to three degrees, but it has stayed on the higher ground of the plateau and hills.
