It is a fine morning here in Madarao and really nice and cold too, so the snow should be in great conditions from the start of the day.

We are expecting sunny blue skies today and perhaps tomorrow too - probably slightly warmer conditions tomorrow - but the main thing to look forward to is the snow that should be falling by the end of the day on Monday and hopefully will continue for a number of days. I like the sound of that.

In the meantime...

It is the Madarao Fire Festival today and it starts at 8pm. There should be a number of things going on involving food and drink, fireworks from 9pm and a 'taimatsu' (torch lit skiing) display from 9:05pm.

Looks like the weather will behave as well.

Might see you out there!
