-2 degrees this morning early on and snowing, but not much of a wind. Just a bit of new snow to report, with 5cm higher up.

Yesterday up top took a look at how the Ice Monsters were coming on, and they seem to be pretty genki considering we still have a week of December left.

The local forecast gives us a good chance of clearer skies tomorrow. Would be good to get to see some sun after this run of snow. Just for a short while, you understand!
