Winter has come early

There has been quite a change in scenery in less than 24 hours here in Austria! Only a couple of days ago it was sunny and 25 degrees here in the valley, with grass greener than anything I've seen in Australia. It has now dropped to sub zero temperatures, (-15 degrees up on the mountain) and a blanket of snow covers the ground here in town. Up at Stubai Glacier, they have received almost half a meter of fresh snow in two days.

Looks like the flower boxes might struggle to survive this week.... :(
