Good morning everyone.

Another fine Golden Week-like day weather wise yesterday with sunshine and warmth; more cloud moving in during the afternoon.

It's a mostly cloudy morning and rain is forecast this morning but it doesn't seem to be falling yet - not here in town where I am anyway. We should expect it though. Hopefully it won't last too long. Bit of a wind too.

Tomorrow should see a return to sunshine and clearer skies.

Tomorrow is of course the last day of the season for GALA Yuzawa, Naeba, Kandatsu Kogen and the Tashiro Area of Kagura.
