Nothing to report in terms of snow but, my oh my, it's one of those days! Blue skies all around, hardly a cloud to be seen (and those that are are just friendly wispy ones).... the sun is out and Zao is looking spectacular. I wasn't quite expecting this.

It's a cold morning, before I left my home earlier the thermometer was telling me close to -10 degrees, so icy out and about this morning - keep your eye on the road as you walk around the village, however tempting it is to look up this morning!

There's just a breeze. And that's about it. Perfect weather conditions.

Next snow of significance? Perhaps at the end of the weekend? Before then it seems we are due for a mix of clearer skies with the odd snow shower scattered around. Around Thursday and Friday we should see temperatures creeping up to around the 0 mark as well, so relatively mild.

Two more evenings of Light Up!
