Things really warmed up yesterday... very mild conditions.

The temperature shown by the side of Route 17 was saying +7 degrees when I went past at 10:30am, even heard people saying how it was a bit 'like spring'. It's way too early to mention that word yet of course, I prefer calling it something like a 'temporary mild spell mid season'. Yes that sounds much better!

Still it was the first evening this year when I didn't reach to put the heater on.

The sun was out through the day though it kind of got overcast in the middle of the day before clearing up once again later in the afternoon.

A fine day to be outside though for sure, though we are now ready for some fresh snow to freshen things up.

I heard some rain late last night but this morning it's a generally cloudy-overcast start to the day, and currently around 4 degrees. Very light rain falling on and off. During the day today we might have some rain down at lower levels, but we I am happy to report that we should be back to snowfall by tonight and snow is forecast for the day tomorrow.

After a break from snow the day after, some potentially heavy snowfall is on the way late Friday and on Saturday.

So it's looking like our refresh is on the way!
