Now this is more like it.... this morning actually feels like winter again. Utopia runs reporting a temperature of -10 degrees. Hurray!

It has been a cold morning so far - currently -3 degrees in the village and earlier on showing -6. Around 5cm or so of new snow I'd say, maybe a bit less, in the village. Hopefully more on top, though whether that would be enough to cover up the crusties is unknown - I'll get up there later on.

The top of the mountain is again shrouded in cloud and it was snowing earlier on but eased off now. Actually the forecast is for clearer conditions to return for today and tomorrow but it should stay cold. Tomorrow should see relatively clear conditions, with a chance of snow but the really good news is that from Monday onwards it looks like we should see a run of days that will bring us snowfall as well as much colder conditions. So looks like early March is going to get a good bit of a winter blast, and hopefully not the last one. Let's hoping! ;)

Three more days of night time "light up" to the top of the mountain!
