Ironically, the first episode I listened to was a talk with a 16 year-old Irish author Dara McAnulty with ABC radio host and author Richard Fidler about Dara's first book 'Diary of a Young Naturalist', where among other things they talked about Christmas snow and the difference in seasons between Australia and Ireland.
Conversations: Dara McAnulty and the Joys of Nature
But while Richard and I were probably sweltering here in Queensland, I saw that the Australian state of Tasmania had snow fall yesterday ... in Summer?!Tasmania and a Lonely Planet?Snow fell overnight and today around Great Lake in Tasmania, blanketing the ground and the trees
The first time in my life that I saw snow for real was in 2016 on top of a mountain in Hobart, Tasmania, and I heard that there was snow on top of it yesterday, too.
I wrote about my Tassie 2016 snow encounter in this post -RevolverSo that podcast episode put me in the mood for the next 'Conversations' podcast episode where Daryl William McInnes reminisced about past Australian Christmases to Richard -Dara would probably look at all this stuff in this post as all coincidental chance?-)
