Happy Chinese New Year!

It's one of those totally stunning mornings here in Hakuba.

There's clear blue skies all around and the sun is making an early morning appearance.

It is also really cold; but I think we'll be able to deal with that!

There's not much else to say this morning other than I hope that you can get to enjoy it.

Oh yes, a bit on the forecast - the snow should be back tomorrow and hopefully falling heavily at times, so fingers crossed for a good new layer of snow.

Keep an eye on the rather eyebrow-raising rising temperatures come Saturday though - if the forecasts are right the freezing line is going to zoom right up close to 3000m and I'm afraid rain is looking likely over the weekend. Let's hope that part of the forecast does some 'adjusting' before then...
