Good morning from here in Shiga Kogen.

Yesterday happily kept colder than perhaps we were expecting it to be.

This morning it's another feel good morning. Not deep blue, but rather pale blue skies.

Yesterday may have kept cold, but we might not be as lucky in the next few days, though of course it would be great if we could! Fingers crossed.

Forecast for the weekend is basically cloud/sun with precipitation later on (rain? maybe snow higher?) and then rain (could it be snow?) on Sunday. What will happen?!

I'll let you know.

For now, a nice morning!
