Akemashite Omedeto Gozaimasu, and a very Happy New Year to you all.

Zao had a pretty good December of course, so here's to a fantastic January, February, March and April too. And May.

This morning the New Year brings us a few more cm of snow, it's snowing now but it's not as cold as it often is and just under 0 degrees at the moment. Nice big flakes of snow falling though right now and I suspect that come tomorrows report I'll be able to tell stories of very fine conditions and a good new delivery of snow.

Might have to look out for stronger winds later on today though...
