A few habitually early risers were astonished to find that during the night snow had fallen and covered the whole landscape to an average depth of about two inches. The effect was electric. Neighbours and friends were hastily aroused, and shortly after sunrise nearly the whole township was astir. The younger residents, and not a few of the…

In exceptionally severe winters it has been seen in small quantities in the hills districts, and occasionally a heavier fall occurs in the higher altitudes of the upper north, but it has seldom, even under the most unusual circumstances, extended continuously over any considerable area. The fortieth parallel of latitude is, roughly speaking, the boundary line at which snow falls except on hills of considerable altitude. As the whole of South Australia is well…
