News For Port Loring & District
Heavy snow, sometimes accompanied by lightning and thunder in a few locales, occurred throughout the night. The snow will continue for much of the day in most areas. A further 5 to 10 centimetres of snow are expected today bringing the total snowfall amounts to between 15 and 25 cm by this evening. Now in saying all this, one should take into consideration that 25 cm is only 9 inches old scale. For one I believe this metric was only brought into our country to deceive folks and if you sit back do some thinking on the subject you will see what my meaning is. Take a look at the gas, speed limits, wind speeds, temperatures you name it. The truth is right there, one just has to look. My Opinion Only. Have a great day and stay safe.
