Good morning from Zao.

It's a really cold morning here. Brrrrrr!

Still pretty busy actually for New Year, but I suspect this afternoon some of the people will be starting to make their way home as the last of the new year visitors end their holiday. Back to normal tomorrow morning.

Light snow forecast at times through mid week, perhaps heavy snow sometime Tuesday.
