(This report was written this morning, sorry for the delay in posting)

It's a lovely Saturday morning here in Zao and today we will again be treated to blue skies and lots of sunshine along with warm temperatures and the sound of snow melting down here in the village.

Some rain is forecast for sometime tomorrow - different forecasts have it coming at different times - though next week the clearer skies and warmth should return.
