Image 1 of 1 Of:  Snow Cover Copyright:  Anders Comment:  Knallhardt. Veldig begrenset med fersk snø å finne etter gårdagens snø/sludd. Ingen skredproblem i dette området. Sola må jobbe lenge for å mykne dette selv i bratte heng. Rekker trolig ikke å bli et skredproblem før neste tilfrysing på kvelden.
