As you have no doubt heard, over the last 24 hours Japan has experienced earthquakes and trunamis and overnight there was an earthquake in the northern Nagano region. There has been no damage in Shiga Kogen from the information available but this is not going to be any normal weekend. In fact from what I can tell none of the resort areas of Shiga Kogen will be open today - though information is still coming in and some conflicting reports as well. (Sorry I won't be able to update this later on today).

The sun is out and we saw new snow, but that really doesn't seem to be on anyone's mind this morning as we look at some of the images coming in from other regions. Very sad.

Hopefully things will calm down quickly and we can get back to something like normal.
