Cloudy here and a small amount of snow fell but the forecast is indicating things will clear and down valley I can see patches of blue.

It's also a little warmer than usual.

I'm over this clear weather but did enjoy a lovely snowshoe out to Ichinokura yesterday (photo below).

Next snow is forecast for Christmas day and it looks like the start of multi-day storm.
