We did in the end get a bit of fresh snow yesterday but this morning we are back to blue skies and sunshine with a bit of cloud.

Not really much else to report... may be a snow shower here or there tonight and tomorrow but generally calm weather and a chance of sun over the next few days. Next snowfall due Thursday.

The weekend crowds are gone and things are quieter.

Oh yes, I heard that the weather folk have announced their 6 month forecast. What's most important to us of course is what happens in March and April and the forecast generally seems to be for temperatures to be a bit higher than average. That's all very vague of course, but thought I would just share it.

We'll take it day by day here right through until May!
