Your are certainly hoarding any that would otherwise be gracing Ratlum Mountain right now.

There's just enough white stuff on the ground here that it almost looks like we have some snow. But we really don't.

A Sunday of 59° and rain does not snow make. The little hint of winter that we had has dispersed.

I dare not say that winter has arrived in fear of the Snow Gods taking it back....

But as of this morning we had 25-30cm of new snow that needed shoveling. We´ve had some snow - and very cold temps off and on - for about a week now but not enough for local skiing until now.

I´m sure everyone in charge of getting the ski tracks ready for me have been working up a good sweat today (at least that´s what I hope).

Ooh, 59F and rain does not sound like winter. Around here, it sounds more like a cool winter day.

Bubo, I hope you are burning incense and making all the proper sacrifices to the Snow Gods so that you will keep what you have been given!

Burning just regular candles instead of incense usually works fine for Swedish snow even though these are extreme conditions. Hoping to get out for my first ski session today after finishing my two hour breakfast (you don´t want to risk making the breakfast gods angry)...

A small yowsa this morning, but not nearly a Yowsa! An opportunity to try out the new plow, although it wasn't really necessary. In terms Ian would understand, only about 2.5 cm.

How many yards?

Pretty much my whole yard.
