A dose of rain to spice things up late yesterday afternoon and evening which then turned to snow. There is very little at the base of Tenjin and up top they are reporting the same which is unusual.

Think the show will be moving to Hodaigi and we wait for the significant snow forecast this evening to come through.

All in all though, its snowing very lightly yet there are patches of blue out there, seems like the heat wave of the past two days has run its course and Winter is back.

Just need a solid reset and then Winter can roll on!
