Another late bonus today! Just when we thought it was just about done we get another fairly solid snow cover. It felt like mid-winter yesterday afternoon with heavy snowfall for several hours in the late afternoon.
There will be plenty of powder to play in out there today with a few clouds but also a few blue skies.
It doesn’t look like we’ll get any more snow this week but fingers crossed we might get some around next weekend.
