More snow overnight and it's calmer this morning.

Lovely conditions in fact. Not only lots of fresh snow for us to play in, but also the sun is out this morning. Keeping cold hopefully for the day.

Expected to get a bit warmer tomorrow but possibly windy as well. But we may get more sun to enjoy as well.

Snow clouds are forecast to be back in the evening (tomorrow) and snowfall for Sunday.
