Very windy morning

Good morning, it seems like this season is about wind, cold and snow - of course all on a different level. After yesterday's snowfall we had about another 8-9cm of fresh snow, but early this morning the wind started its work on it. At 7AM: -11.3 Celsius, near gale force wind from NE, very limited visibility, windchill is in the minus 30's now. Fortunately the forecast was not correct, so we had a total of 12mm precipitation in last 36hrs (equals about 12-14cm of snow). That's great news!
Some of the trails were prepared yesterday, but I guess none of them can stand this force.

Later update: Wind died down and turned out to be a great sunny, but cold day with some interesting windblown snow formations.
