Rare spring storm dumps 3 feet of snow on Australia

Australians went exterior to play within the snow Saturday, marveling at a shock spring storm that dropped greater than 3 feet within the mountains of a number of states.

The bureau is predicting that the chilly climate will hold the snow round for a number of days within the alpine areas — a lot to the delight of Raj Kumar, who had traveled along with his household from Sydney to New South Wales’ Blue Mountains.
