Yeh it's always a very real risk, particularly at this time of year when the temps are still fluctuating like crazy

What I'm finding really interesting is the cloud seeding saga. Snowy Hydro have commenced a 6 year study into cloud seeding in the snowies - the idea is to augment the melt run-off for the summer seasons, increase the levels in the snowy pondages/storages for peak load summer electricity generation from Hydro generators in the Alps.

See here for more info about the cloud seeding trial

It's been used in Tassie for years apparently

I had a bit of intelligence that it was done last week the day of the first decent dump. I wouldn't be suprised if they are at it right now. They have a couple of launch sites on the main range - as well as the more risky and difficult seeding from small aeroplanes
