Reader photos from the Bathurst snow on July 17, 2015 | #Throwback

IT has become one of the real “where were you when ...” moments in Bathurst’s recent history.

It was three years ago today that residents woke to a winter wonderland like few had ever seen.

Overnight, the Bathurst district had been blanketed by the heaviest dump of snow seen in these parts for many years.

Long-time residents believed it would have been four or five decades since they had seen such thick snow right across the city – and we’ve certainly seen nothing like it since.
