I say it is a cool snap, as its not exactly a cold snap. The clouds lifted yesterday afternoon, leaving us vulnerable to overnight frost. It is lovely and clear, a perfect winter day. Apparently all the rain we have recieved on the lover levels has been falling as snow in the hills. The skiing this year is the best it has been for years in this area. Lets hope it is as good in 2010 when Vancouver hosts the Winter Olympics. There is no skiing on these Golden Ears Mountains. They are a bit too rugged for that.
