WHILE we shake in our slippers as the temperatures begin to plummet into single figures, we've got nothing on those who were ploughing through the roads of the Southern Downs on July 12, 1965.
This was the coldest day ever recorded in the Darling Downs where the Hermitage got to an icy -10.6 degrees.
Four years earlier, the same temperature was recorded in Stanthorpe on June 23, 1961, and since these frosty days, the Downs has not seen anything quite so chilly.
So, while the Stanthorpians claim they are the coldest town in Queensland, we too have reached the lowest recorded temperature.
Locals reported snow in Warwick in 1984; but, according to historian Graham Gillam it was only heavy sleet.
He also said he didn't think it snowed on the two aforementioned coldest days.
If you have any snow photographs from past falls, we'd love to see them.
