Morning everyone.

This winter storm is still over the region and providing us with further snow. The resort is reporting 30cm of fresh snow; I am measuring 36cm. Wind has been a factor, so it has been blown about a lot meaning there are drifts and more/less in places.

We should be over the peak of it now though with things expected to calm down during the day today.

Perhaps we might get to see a bit of sun at times from tomorrow. Even if things are calmer and brighter by the weekend, come Monday more snow is due to be back over Madarao.

That kind of regular pattern sounds good to me.

The coming weekend should be really great. Quite a few other people will probably be thinking the same, so plan to get here early is my best advice.
