Good morning from Geto.

Strong winds meant that nighta operations had to be closed yesterday which is a shame. The wind was blowing the snow around so while it felt like it was snowing, it actually wasn't.

No new cm of snow to report and it is a cloudy start to the day. There's more snow forecast for tomorrow so we should be getting a top-up again soon.

Look out for the event tomorrow evening involving fire and demon swordsmiths (it says here - I'm intrigued!)
