Morning.

Unfortunately, we did get that rain yesterday. :(

Happily, it turned into snow later on and the resort is this morning reporting 5cm of fresh. Not sure that will be enough for a reset but certainly better than wet.

This morning light snow was falling a bit earlier but that has stopped now. There's a lot of cloud around but also a few bits of blue sky. It is also colder than yesterday so hopefully we're getting back to more mid-winter conditions again.

Snow is due tonight so I hope to be reporting a decent fresh layer to you.

Enjoy your Saturday.
