Strong winds yesterday during the day but some good snow to be found.

Just a thin layer to add to that this morning and cloudy skies to start the day. Temperature just under 0 degrees here in the village.

Still due snowfall today though and hopefully into tomorrow. None is better than rain though so hopefully we'll get to avoid that.

Let's see what I can report tomorrow!
