Morning snow at Blackheath

There were lots of snowballs being thrown, snowmen built and the boogie boards were out this morning at Blackheath as kids went in search of the steepest hill they could slide down.

The Great Western Highway looked like a goat track, barely distinguishable, with only a few vehicles travelling on the roads locally while the highway remained closed. 

Snow was up to 20cm deep in parts of Blackheath and one snowman proudly stood bang in the middle of the usually busy Govetts Leap Rd and Great Western Highway intersection, the few cars on the road navigating their way around the magnificent fellow. 

Between Medlow Bath and Katoomba there were scores of trucks covered in snow stationary on the usually bustling highway.
