Lovely morning for it.

The sun is out. Blue skies. No wind. (No new snow unfortunately).

The recent snow though should keep things a lot of fun this morning.

We still have snow forecast for tonight into tomorrow and the chance of snow into Thursday as well. Just how that plays out.... well, I'll let you know.

For now though a morning to get up there early.
