I don't have much to report to you this morning really.

It's mainly cloudy at the moment and no new snowfall being reported though just a bit since my morning report yesterday.

Might the skies clear today? Or tomorrow... forecasts seem to disagree on that so we'll just have to see what nature brings us. There's not a whole lot of fresh snow on the weekly forecast at the moment, we just hope it remains cold to keep the snow conditions.
