If you decided to start celebrating St Patrick’s day early and had one or two too many last night and can't get out of bed then maybe was not a bad decision.

Today's conditions are probably best viewed by the fire with a warming glass of whisky! After such a stellar week, it was always going to be a bit of a downer to cop some rain as was forecast for today. On top of that we have some strong winds so a lot of the upper mountain including the Nagasaka Gondola are on hold at present.

The only bonus is there may be a bit of snow falling up top and no one will be there to track it out. Good news looking ahead is that temps are on the way down again and we are expecting a solid dump up top from tomorrow night with heavy snow forecast. Then should start to clear Monday and a bit of sunshine on the cards.

Don't forget to make your way down to Oyu Dori the main street tonight for the Family Festival should be fun and no doubt the Stay Bar, Foot Bar and Heaven Bar, the golden triangle will have a bit of Irish cheer on offer as well. Take it easy out there and Slainte!

Why did God invent whiskey? So the Irish would never rule the world.
