What’s this? It’s not snowing!

It has been snowing for such a long time now it feels strange that it has stopped. And is that the sun?!

Today is set to be a superb day to be here with the fine weather forecast and excellent top quality snow conditions. I’m almost jealous of myself.

Better still, after a few calmer days, there’s more (probably heavy) snow on the way just in time for the weekend.

It doesn’t get much better than this.
