We are back to lovely again this morning with some really nice blue skies appearing as the snow clouds move on from earlier. Those clouds actually brought us a bit of new snow as well - just a cm or two here and on the mountain. It has been a cold morning and while it has of course warmed up a bit, not too much. Still feels quite chilly outside with a slight wind.

Forecast says warmer tomorrow, sun with a chance of rain.
