Just a kangaroo in the vineyard during Australian snowstorm

Posted: Updated:

SYDNEY (AP) - Kangaroos are a common sight for Australian vineyard owner Bill Shrapnel. But a winter storm this week was the first time he'd seen a 'roo in the snow.
    
Shrapnel guesses about 30 of the "timid" and "watchful" creatures live on his 77-acre Colmar Estate vineyard in Orange, New South Wales.
    
But before he peeked out his back window Thursday, he had never seen one of the kangaroos in the snow.
    
"They just turned up and started to feed. The younger ones boxed with one another as if it was just another day."
    
A surprised Shrapnel snapped a photo, which his daughter shared on social media.
    
The winter storm caused traffic accidents, school closures and power outages around the state on Australia's southeastern coast.
