Hi all,


So who's had snow in January? Not much where I live as yet, although the forecast is suggesting I'll get some before the month of January is officially over. As someone who grew up without snow, that makes me very happy. I'm sure my neighbours will probably disagree though. 


So, moving on to the nitty gritty of calculating community payback. Current status is listed below, and I'll provide updates as we tick items off.

Hi @alex_w


We've had a few flurries here and there, but nothing significant as of yet! Smiley Wink


Thank you very much for the update! Here's to hoping you get some snow soon!
