    "Kangaroos filmed hopping through rare Australian snow"

    Footage has emerged of kangaroos bounding through a field in Australia that has been blanketed in snow.

    After strong winds and freezing winter conditions swept across three south-eastern states, parts of the country experienced rare snowfall.



    Meteorologists have said this is one of the coldest outbreaks to hit Australia in recent years.

    In the capital Canberra local media reported that an Australian rules football match was played in the snow for the first time.

    The snowfall also led to road closures outside of Sydney.

    What do you think may have caused such a severe hail storm? Curious.

    See post 552.

    Meteorologists describe it as unusual but not unprecedented. Link also explains why the photos and videos make it appear more dramatic than it was.

    Quote llegal logging operations in Brazil have also been known to start fires as a tactic to drive indigenous people off their land and to cover their tracks. The Amazon rainforest has experienced a record number of fires this year, with 72,843 reported so far. It’s an 84 percent increase over the number of wildfires at the same time last year.
