Happily that early rain stayed just being early and we had a generally cloudy and sometimes windy day.

This morning started off cloudy but I'm happy to report that snow has now started snowing. :)

Snow is forecast for the day today so lets hope that tomorrow there's be something decent to report. (Though this isn't likely to last much into tomorrow according to the forecast. It's all about what we can get from it today!)

Temperatures will probably hover around the zero mark in town today, perhaps get into low positive numbers, but definitely a bit colder than it has been.

There may also be a moderate wind again during the day but for now resorts all seem to be preparing to open as normal.

Looking forward to the report tomorrow!
