A dusting of new snow is about all we had this morning but it was snowing early on but... it's actually quite nice now, here in Maruike anyway. Clouds cleared a bit and some sky to see, the sun even peeking through as well.

Calm before the storm perhaps as we are still being told to expect heavy snow tonight over a wide region along with a return to some extremely cold temperatures and a real mid-winter feel.

There should be lots of fresh for the new year.

If you plan to be here, be sure to come prepared for the conditions extra layers at hand.

See you next year!
