The view outside my window this morning looks much the same as it was yesterday really. Cloudy. The top of the mountain just about visible at times but cloud generally hovering around the top of the mountain. Temperatures remain about where they were yesterday and it is currently around +1 in the village and Utopia is saying -1 as of 8:30am.

No new snow and no wind.

Yesterday I mentioned snow was due from today. That still seems to be the case and actually things are looking quite promising. Hopefully it will be snowing later today and into tomorrow and starting to get much colder. Sunday into Monday is also looking very promosing in terms of snowfall, so it's the old fingers crossed that the forecast gets it right routine.

Hope to bring the first of the good news tomorrow morning.
