Saturday morning promised snow settling across the central west, but like much of the rest of 2020, it didn't quite deliver.
Orange woke up to snow on windscreens and patchy coverings of grass, but at 9.30am the flurries came down, the cars revved up and the road to the Pinnacle became as busy as Parramatta Road on a Monday.
They came from all over to the Pinnacle and the base of the mountain - from Parkes and Eugowra and Molong and Bathurst.
Enaya Fatema, Ebaad Faruq, Shadman Nidit and Ayman Islam all had their first tastes of snow and loved it, with snowballs flying left and right.
Ella Richard, from Parkes, brought her dog Tilly across for her first day in the snow - although despite being wrapped in two layers she wasn't as enthusiastic about the white stuff.
"She's a little bit cold, she's got a wooly layer and then this layer and is in my jacket as well," Ms Richards said.
"She's gone down a little bit, she's a bit scared and a bit confused by it.
"Look at her, she's asking 'what's happening?!'."
Alec and Lindsey Stewart were able to watch the traffic heading up the mountain from their front yard, and had no need to join the queue of snow-gazers heading up the mountain. The snow had come to them.
The Stewarts head away to the snow most years, but Ms Stewart said she loved when it snowed in their front yard - and from the excited squeals of Alec as he slid down the hill near his snowman, so did he.
"We don't take skis or anything, we just take toboggans," she said.
"We nearly went away this weekend but I'm glad we didn't, it's nice when the snow is here."
Snow is expected to continue falling throughout Saturday afternoon and evening, and there's expected to be a decent blanket across the region on Sunday morning as well.
Orange is due for a top of four degrees, with winds of up to 30km/h, on Saturday, with just five degrees on Sunday.
