Yesterday I was mentioning the chance of seeing more of the mountain today and in the coming few days. Well, right now we can see slightly more of it but the upper slopes are once again shrouded in cloud.

It isn't snowing now, but we have had perhaps 5cm or so of fresh snow fall since yesterdays report and this morning it is a cold -7 degrees perhaps feeling a bit colder than that with a bit of a wind blowing.

Tomorrow should see less wind and more of a chance of clearer skies (have I said that before?!) and it does actually look like we may get to see the mountain again soon. Here's hoping as what a sign it is when it does appear.

Actually since I have started writing this report, the skies seem to have got brighter and the clouds moved up the mountain with more on view. So it could even happen today.
