Let it snow, let it snow…

Let it snow, let it snow…

It has certainly not been your average Friday morning in the Central West today, with CSU Bathurst and Orange being blanketed overnight with a layer of beautiful white snow. This unusual weather definitely hasn’t deterred people from going outdoors, quite the opposite actually – with loads of fun snaps being sent into Charlie this morning. Keep them coming to @CSUCharlie so we can keep up with your snow frolicking adventures!
