The early morning clouds gradually dispersed during the day yesterday and the sun was shining by the afternoon.

And this morning we have clear blue skies over Yuzawa. It's a truly beautiful morning. A bit of cloud to the north in Minamiuonuma, but we are expecting a day of clear and sunny skies and temperatures rising to around 9C this afternoon.

Kagura seem to be reporting the same '3-5cm of snowfall' as they did yesterday morning - with todays time stamp on it. I don't know if that is something left over from yesterday or they did actually get some fresh snow up there since yesterday... I'm guessing the former unless it was snow falling in the morning yesterday, but I cannot confirm. It is certainly the kind of day that would be nice to get up there and check first hand though!

By the end of today my garden area should be totally prepared for winter. There's a lot to get sorted.
