The grand red sky and brilliant sun rise being hidden behind cloud cover. Temp -1C, calm, the promised moisture not too far away, showers changing to snow flurries overnight, carrying on till late tomorrow, cold and clear for most of next week.
Road crew out during the night getting some salt down, yard has a skiff of ice showing, will let up as the day moves along.
Time getting by woodpile isn't going to materialise by itself, ground too soft, not likely to be able to get any wood down today. If such is the case will stow the remainder of the Christmas gear and have that out of the way till fall.
