It's not quite as outlandish as they make out though. Snowfall north of Baghdad is extremely common. Indeed there are ski resorts in northern Iraq.

The best I can find for snow last reported in Sydney was in the 1830's.Infact the article states they have experienced four of the hottest Summers of late?Mind my research skills are not #1 :o
