It has never snowed in Sydney, as far as anyone knows, but it does get the occasional good hail storm. The one on April 14, 1998 will probably not be forgotten for generations (click the link for photo/story). That one destroyed my new car .... while I was in it.
Today, while Sydneysiders were commemorating Fathers' Day (first Sunday in September in the World's Second-Greatest Democracy), hail came down on Sydney Town. Not like 1998, but enough to give Sydney in Springtime almost a Northern Hemisphere Christmas appearance.
Baz le Tuff sent me a link to some good photos.
