Today the snow finally arrived in Cairns:
We had a perfect day for it - blue skies and 30C temps!!
Needless to say the snow wasn't soft and fluffy, but rather hard and icy - and melting fast!!
But the machines kept pumping out more, and lots of fun was had by all!
The prep penguins looked great in their costumes (made by yours truly!)
They gathered in the snow - (tropical penguins in boardshorts!)
For their five minutes of fame on Channel Nine's breakfast Tv show with weatherman Stevie Jacobs
And then time for a little fruit salad for penguin breakfast in the snow...
Voted best fun by all...was the slide!!
But being Far North Queensland, you still have to watch out for crocodiles! Even in the snow!
