Cold and windy - and lots of snow!

It was a shocker of a day when I drove to Launceston on Tuesday. An hour from home all the hills and ranges were covered with snow - was too cold to get out of the car to take the photos, so took them from inside heheheehe

Quamby Bluff, Deloraine

Western Tiers behind Deloraine


Snowing on the other end of the Great Western Tiers south of Deloraine.


My sister and BIL used to live in Deloraine years ago and I remember having to go to the toilet which was off the Laundry - these mountains were the view and I was astounded by the amount of snow and couldn't help but be pleased that my house's toilet was much warmer, although viewless!!

Going home again tomorrow - CT scans yesterday showed that the cancer is only in the bladder - the first good news we have had from the specialist EVER! Now we have to wait for a date for its removal as the carcinoma in situ has become invasive in part and will continue to grow. Lots more sitting around in hospital rooms coming up, so I have to start a list of what needs to be made and get some tracing, etc organised.

Got a nasty scare when I saw how many days till the opening of the Stocking swap - so have now traced it off and will be working on it over the weekend Jane. Will be posting though as I can't see me getting south for a while yet!

It should be possible to have cancer treatment etc in Burnie, but with the new cost cuts coming up, I doubt it will happen any time soon.

Wind is blowing a million miles an hour up here today......and I have to venture out and watch the boy play footy at 3....brrrr! Relieved for you both that some good news is finally starting to filter through...picture winter with spring on its way, a little bleak at the moment but the hint of blue skies and beautiful flowers just a short time away xoxox

Sorry to read about your husband's illness. I hope he is on the road to recovery shortly. I have enjoyed having the snow settle in our Hobart suburt yesterday morning! The views around Deloraine are sensational. Love your blog owls by the way.
