Merry Christmas for yesterday, not a lot has changed since my last report.

We are having cold, mostly clear nights and warmish days but this is the proverbial calm before the storm.

Looks like a little snow tonight and tomorrow afternoon and then tomorrow night is looking medieval. Snow is forecast continuously through Monday, so buckle up!
