Morning from Yuzawa.

The morning started off with mostly cloud but as of 9am there's more blue sky appearing and the sun appearing as well in some places. The webcams around town show lots of cloud (and fog?) in higher areas for the moment.

It is currently +2C here so fairly chilly and not expected to warm up much. Perhaps we will get a little bit of snow overnight tonight but generally the forecast shows clearer skies for the weekend (after those clouds clear up).

Every year we have that early first snowfall and everyone gets excited (or panic-ed, depending on who you are!). I think without exception that dries up - just as it has this year too - before the real snow starts falling. That first snowfall certainly was on the early side this season, so let's hope that the full-on start will arrive early. Right now the taps don't look like their are going to be turned on in the coming week, so we will need to remain calm and excited for what is to come.

And finish off rushing around preparing for winter!
