5-10cm of fresh snow!

Yes, it's good news this morning. After a run of warmer conditions and some rain, yesterday got colder and snow started falling from the evening leaving us with 5-10cm of fresh snow on the ground this morning. There was 7cm of snow on my car and it felt great to have to wipe it all off. Still snowing now too, lightly. Not enough to hide the icy conditions underneath of course, but... I'll take it! We might get some more cm as well before the day ends.

Tomorrow the clouds should ease off and then before the weekend it will probably start to get a bit warmer once again.
