Snow was falling pretty decently yesterday afternoon and into the evening but after driving home at 7 last night and leaving my car out I woke up to no fresh snow on the car at all. Goryu are reporting a fresh 10cms and with blue skies, some clouds and cold temperatures the windblown stashes should be sweet.

Just some light breezes in Echoland but our weather station is reporting strong (+20 m/s) North-Westerlies this morning too. Still snowmen on the radar but with not a lot materializing so far its hard to get too excited...the predominant feeling is definitely "come on, dump already"...
