[Apologies for the report appearing late today, due to technical issues this morning. The report was originally posted at 8:30am]

It felt pretty cold out just now when I was having a brisk early morning walk, but today things are going to warm up.

Expect a bit more to be open from tomorrow morning, but it's still going to be limited due to the fact that we haven't had the snow to let everywhere open up yet.

Come on snow - we're waiting!
