While coastal bushland on the Mid North Coast went up in flames this weekend, the Northern Tablelands was freezing.
The Bureau of Meteorology predicted a weekend of extremes, and the weather did not disappoint.
The two are connected, however, with Antarctic blasts making the mercury plummet over the ranges, while simultaneously fanning flames along our dryer-than-normal coastline.
Bowra-born Beau Duncan now lives in Walcha and said the town received a two centimetre dusting of snow on Saturday evening, and a more significant six cm fall last night.
The snow was just the icing so-to-speak on a shocking year, weather-wise for our communities out west.
"We have had it bad out here from the drought to snow," Beau said.
Meanwhile, another of our readers and professional photographer, Sergio Mendoza, made tracks to Guyra yesterday for a very special photo shoot.
Did you make the pilgrimage to see the snow this weekend? We'd love to see your pics.
