Yesterday was... disappointing. Rain. We don't like rain. It's rubbish.

But anyway happily I can report that it is now snowing. Hurray! Madarao reporting 15cm, not quite as much down where I am.

If we can get a decent amount on the ground today to cover up damage done yesterday, it should be good for the weekend. The snow isn't due to continue right through though and may clear up sooner than we hope for. Come on snow, lots please.

Tomorrow the sun should be out. So even if there isn't a thick new layer of fresh powder, the weather conditions should be good.

Just looking at the weekly forecast - you can do that too by clicking on the link at the bottom of my report any time - and we can see some nice snow due later on Tuesday.

Have a great weekend.
