Morning.

About 10cm of snow overnight and light snow now falling, though I think it should be a case of on/off for the day today. There might even be some clearer skies and there are actually some hints of that in places even now at 8am.

Tomorrow is much more of a lock in for heavier snow if the forecasts are correct.

It's still New Year holidays for many herem though today is the day when people start doing the 'U-turn' back home.

It has felt almost normal this year. People are wearing masks, but there's more of them. (Let us hope those pesky numbers keep in check and we can keep on going like this.......)
