Morning from Shiga Kogen.

Yesterday was a fine day weather wise and temperatures remained pretty cold.

I am hearing word of rain at lower areas this morning, but here in Shiga Kogen it is snowing... and coming down quite heavily as well as I write this. Not the lightest driest snow, but definitely better than rain! Though forecasts do warn of the potential for it to be raining sometime today. Let's keep those temperatures down to avoid that!

There's a wind with us too today so it perhaps feels colder than it actually is.

Decent snow expected tonight so I should have a nice new layer to report tomorrow morning. Forecast looks decent through until the weekend too.
