It is another fine morning here, perhaps more cloud than expected but they might clear up as the day progresses.

Lots of blue sky and sunshine to enjoy yesterday, so many people out with their cameras. The Ice Monsters were looking fairly decent as well considering the damage done to them previously...

The forecasts are odd for tomorrow. Some say rain, some say snow. Which would you prefer? ;)

We'll just have to wait and see.
