Snow on the surface today, not much but it does make things look nice and white again. Up high the trees are white again, which is always good to see, and there might have been (as often happens) more snow mid-mountain than at the base or the summit.

Pretty sunny out there, though, although there are some fluffy, almost summer-like clouds over the mountains to the south and east.

Should be sunny and warm again as the freezing level makes another climb tomorrow, but "only" to 1800 meters. Then, could it be a few days of snow ahead? My snow-removal machines are getting rusty waiting for some work here, so they'd be happy. Machines having the Buddha nature and all that (thank you Gary Snyder, our Beat reference for the season).
