As predicted, following Saturday's violent storm, yesterday dawned calm and clear and we saw the return of blue skies. We took advantage of the break in the weather to fell and log a couple of dead trees in order to replenish our wood stores. It was a good move, as by early evening the clouds were building with more poor weather on the way. We waited in anticipation for the snow which had been forecast and sure enough, by the time we went to bed, flakes were falling. This morning we had a covering of up to 6" in places. Eventually the skies started to clear and the snowy vista revealed itselfHowever, temperatures have risen this afternoon, more clouds have moved in, it is raining and the snow has turned to a wholly unpleasant wet slushy mush. Let's see if the further snow that is forecast for overnight actually materialises?
