March starts off with sunny blue skies, just as February ended really.

It's starting off a bit milder and I think today I'll only be putting one layer under my ski jacket.

Beautiful morning. Sunscreen definitely needed - I saw a few rather red faces yesterday evening.

While I often really enjoy March, it's a difficult one to pin down and know what we're going to get. I hold out for some decent snow deliveries and look forward to snow on Friday - and hoping we can avoid too much rain damage in the lead up to that (from later tomorrow).

Hope you can be here to enjoy things today!
