Good morning.

This is a little bit more like it, sort of. Not a whole lot of fresh snow down at base so far - ever so slightly over 1cm - but it is definitely colder with the temperature back down below zero (where it jolly well should be) and we are expecting snow to be falling every day now through until Sunday. Just how much, I will let you know every morning.

For the moment it is mostly cloudy with some very light snow falling in places but some sun actually shining through in others. Pretty. Let's snowing please.

Tomorrow if course is the last day of November. I plan to post my 'season so far' November report on Monday.
