Today's wintry blast has brought snow with it - and we've got reports of falls as far afield as Gillies St Ballarat, Nerrina, Daylesford, Gordon (above), Yendon, Mt Buninyong and more.

We've been inundated with photos and videos, but want to thank everyone who contributed.

Maybe it wasn't enough to build a snowman, but kids across the region were racing outside to check it out.

Some even managed to scrape enough together for a snowball (Gordon, below).

Rhonda kindly sent us this video of the snow at St Patricks PS in Gordon.

She says there has also been some impressive snow in Mt Egerton as well.

Check out this impressive white blanket, also at Gordon...

And John sent us this one from the Kryal Castle carpark...


And just to make your day, this is how much warmer it is at the moment in the Arctic (with thanks to Darren)...
