Beautiful weather yesterday in Zao, deep blue skies and the scenery looking just amazing. Good snow too.

10cm of snow greets us this morning in Zao and strong winds as well as heavy snow falling early on but it's less so now and I can even see some blue sky up there between the clouds. Snow is due today though so likely just a temporary thing.

Even so once these clouds do move on we have clearer conditions forecast for the rest of the week and things due to get warm too. Well, relatively warm anyway.
