The sun is out, mostly, this morning with a few flakes drifting down from time to time. Nice snow up higher yesterday, although it was pretty heavy lower (but good skiing onpiste). It's staying cold today; that rise in the freezing line is going to start on Friday, so get out before then (also Saturday, before Sunday's rain, could be a nice spring day).

Speaking of spring, I have some local knowledge to share. My newspaper guy/snowthrower repairman/hotel owner came by to change the fan belt on the snowthrower and gave the common knowledge on potential snowfall for the rest of the month/season. The first early fall of March can be a big one, but we probably can't expect much more. The exceptions, says folk knowledge, is White Day (March 14) and one more day that I thought he said was Newspaper Day, but that could only be Sports Newspaper Day (March 6 - not likely). That actually links up pretty well with other predictions that the snow is going to be disappearing early this year.

So I says, go out and get it while you can. It's nice out today, with snowy trees and nice white cover everywhere. With rain and wind, the snow figures could go down fast.
