Fine weather conditions yesterday making for some beautiful scenery and some fine looking ice monsters, even if they may generally be smaller than usual.

Earlier on this morning some snow was falling but since then it has eased off and there's been a bit of sunshine.

Snowfall is expected though today and overnight tonight; hopefully quite a lot of it as well so I look forward to reporting that in my report tomorrow morning.
