Snow storm! This morning it was quite wild out there early on with strong winds and snow falling - or more like being blown about. In the end just a few cm or so really but more in places. It was a very cold -11 degrees and down to around -16 degrees up on the top of the mountain.

Things have calmed down since then and actually as I write this I can even see some shadows being cast on the lower slope though generally it is still very cloudy with the top of the mountain covered and not visible. Heavy snow is due tonight and into tomorrow though and these wintery conditions are still forecast to be with us over into the weekend.
