Driving home from shopping this afternoon around 16:30 CET saw the most enormous moon. Was on autoroute, so couldn't just stop to get a photo. Came off autoroute at usual exit, but too many trees to get a photo.

Late edit: We will get snow on Tuesday, but not too much...
Lunar eclipse tonight, visible to those bordering both sides of the Atlantic.

1 cm snow last night.

Cold. But I have an extra day off so I don't have to go out in it and it should moderate for tomorrow.

.../smug

I think more cold is headed in for Friday though.

The cold is, well, cold but I can grudgingly accept it as long as it brings no precipitation with it. Looks like there will be showers or flurries on Friday, Sunday and Monday though but the only one I've heard about that will bring any significant accumulation is today/tomorrow which could be another 4-7"

Not that we can put much faith in anything beyond a 3 day forecast but I looked at the 'month' extended forecast on (in)accuweather and it seems to suggest that February will be OK, or as OK as a winter month can be. Temps in the 20s, a bit of sun and no real threat of snow for now.

We have snow, slightly earlier than forecast, and slightly more than forecast. Just above freezing, set to stay for a few days.

Not that I would actually do that but our fridge is basically full of condiments and not much else at the moment anyway.
