It did end up raining yesterday down here at base, though I hear that it was snowing higher up on the mountain (though I didn't get up there myself).

This morning just a slight dusting of snow here in the village as the temperature hovers around 0 dergrees.

It's a cloudy morning and nothing is falling from the skies for now.

Forecast for the weekend is cloud/chance of sun/chance of snow - so take your pick there! Does look like it's going to warm up Tuesday.
