It was a beautiful morning yesterday but conditions were quite different by the end of the day.

Snow, wind, cold... proper mid winter conditions overnight and snow still falling this morning.

There's another good new layer of fresh snow. A friend of mine seemingly getting carried away with himself said 70cm, but I can't 'replicate' that number. There's lots of wind-blown snow around - and it's light - so it's one of those mornings where a number is difficult to pin down but going with my usual measuring points (and talking with a few other people) I think that 30cm is the number to go with. (Executive decision made!)

As I said it is still snowing and we are expecting more during the day today but it should have stopped by tomorrow morning. Saturday is forecast clear skies too with another bank of snow clouds coming in before Monday morning.
