Good morning from Madarao.

It's as thick as some particularly thick soup out there early this morning. Can't see much of anything at all. That will probably improve and leave us with cloudy skies.

Yesterday was mild and wet. This morning it's kind of trying to snow, though still on the wet side and not significant.

It looks like we can expect some clearer skies tomorrow and Saturday. Hopefully back to snow by the end of the weekend and into next week. Hopefully we will see a return to more like normal mid-winter January weather. Keeping an eye on the forecasts...
