What a beautiful day it was yesterday. A stunner right through the day.

We may not have been blessed with fresh snow, but the setting we enjoy here is hard to beat!

Alas, it was as warm as we were hoping it wouldn't be with a lot of snow melt going on.

Temperatures dropped down to just around zero overnight but it's going to warm up once again today with temperatures here in the village once again forecast to rise up to maybe as high as 14-15 degrees this afternoon. Poka-poka, as they say.

This morning there's a nice blue backdrop to the mountain range though more cloud over to the east.

Rain is forecast to be falling by the end of the day today and continue into tomorrow, possibly heavy at times.

Not what you want to hear... sorry!!

Sunday should be better, or dry at least - and somewhat colder.

What's that on the forecast for Wednesday next week, heavy snow?!

Mad season.
