Good morning from Madarao.

And a good one it should be too with 10+cm since my last report - this time I am measuring a bit more than the 10cm being reported by the resort itself.

There's a break in the snow clouds now (for the day?) and the sun is out in places, and blue skies appearing.

It should be a very good morning.

The clock continues to tick faster than we would like and there can't be too many fresh snow mornings left in the season. So we must - it is our duty to - make the most of it...
