Storm leaves kangaroos frolicking in the snow

Unusual footage showing the strange combination of kangaroos and snow recently went viral on social media.
An unexpected bout of chilly weather hit New South Wales in Australia over the weekend, covering the arid landscape of the outback with a crisp coating of up to 5 inches of snow.

Keen to document the unusual weather, one resident - Stephen Grenfell - used his camera to capture footage of kangaroos bounding across the snow-covered landscape.

"Not something you see every day in Australia," he wrote on Twitter.

Despite its reputation for hot, dry weather, Australia does actually experience snowfall on occasion.

This particular flurry however was the most snow that Grenfell had ever seen.

That means nothing. Australian semi desert like any other deserts is seeing very hot temperatures during the day and freezing cold at night when occasional rain becomes snow.

I think the point is more that kangaroos aren't usually found frolicking around in the snow. (Seeing blankets of snow in Australia is pretty rare, you usually have to be in specific areas). Mainly the center of Australia is desert, with the east coast not being very desert-like at all.
