Had a nice drive to Nagano this morning, so I can provide a bit of a regional report. It's sunny from Myoko all the way across to the Nagano Plain, with some fog to the south of us here. Big line of clouds out over the ocean to the north, but it looks like that weather will stay out there and we'll have sun for at least the next two days.

The long-term weather has been weird. Yesterday it looked like the freezing line was going to head way up the mountain to nearly 3500 meters. Which is more like autumn (or occasionally in summer). That has changed so now Friday looks like heavy rain changing to snow, but who knows at this point?

This is a week to keep watching the weather report, and doing whatever rituals might result in less wet and more white. The snow is off to a good start, but of course we need more.
