No sun this morning! That makes for a change. Still it's quite bright and just thin cloud so perhaps it might clear up during the day.

It's just cloudy to start the day off, temperature around 6 degrees here in the village as of 9am.

Snow has been quickly melting away from lower areas. Still, for the time of year a lot remains.
