{snow-relevant quote from article}

"Snow Climax To Rough October
Snow at Mount Lofty capped the last week-end of a rough and wet October. In addition, sharp downpours added to Adelaide's record rain total and squalls overturned yachts and blew down country power lines.
A light fall of snow on the summit was reported by Mt. Lofty residents yesterday afternoon. The light flakes were seen falling, but melted before they rested on the ground. A resident said that it was like a mid-winter day at Mt. Lofty. The summit was enveloped in cloud for most of the day. "
