Happy New Year!

I didn't spend the day in bed, as Mozzer might say, but I did have a bit of a lie-in this morning. I hear earlier on the sun was out but right now it is cloudy with light snow falling and a thin layer on the ground.

The forecasts are looking good for decent snowfall over the next few days - with the heaviest expected as we enter Wednesday. Temperatures will dip and there's a good chance of stronger winds too. Be prepared.

All the best for 2018.
