Light snow on and off I said yesterday. Well, yes, snow... and strong winds at time. It was blowing a gale at times, and it even stopped the ski jump competition at times over at the jump-dai.

Less wild conditions this morning though it remains cloudy. Keeping cold and no new snow to report since yesterday though there was the snow that fell yesterday which I will note below.

Variable conditions forecast over the next few days, snow showers at times. We can expect warmer temperatures at the end of the week, hopefully won't rise too high.
