Brrrrrr!

It's very cold. I would say very probably the coldest morning of the season so far. (That's a good thing, not a moan!)

It's also a very fine clear morning. Blue skies, sun,... beautiful bluebird. And happily, something like normal rather than all this talk of the 'mild winter'. Long may it continue!

We could of course still do with lots more snow. It's on the forecast that snow is due later on today/tonight and through tomorrow.

It has got to be said though that unfortunately there is no major dump to be seen on the weekly forecast right now. We're going to have to keep on taking the fresh snow bit by bit it would seem, for the moment anyway.

Still, the cold is a very good thing and that looks set to continue.
