And a very good morning to you.

Things are much improved this morning! :)

There's fresh snow on the ground - Madarao is reporting 10cm and 15-20cm (official site and that Facebook thingy), and I am measuring 11cm for this report. Very nice to see. Don't you just love snow!

Lots of cloud still around but actually in places the sun appears to be making an effort to shine through... might it just clear up? Yes, it might well do.

The forecast for the weekend seems to be a mix of cloud, sun and snow showers - nothing major - so keep that in mind if you are coming our way.
