Yesterday was a beauty. Some wispy white cloud here and there but generally clear, blue skies.

All change this morning. Poor visibility and snow is coming down. A few cm on the ground since it started earlier on. It's about -4 in the village and Utopia only -6, so not the coldest of days by far but this kind of snow will hopefully bring us a decent amount of cm by the end of the day if it continues.

Just a slight wind.

Tomorrow we might have clearer skies above us once again but a return to snow after that. Seems the snow clouds will never be far away in the coming week.
