First of all one thing about yesterdays report... I didn't mean that "no new snow" was a good thing, just that the weather was very fine and that it was a feel good day out and about. And it was that.

We're back to grey and cloudy this morning though but I do have 10cm of fresh snowfall to report. Which is obviously a good thing!

Keeping cold down to -7 degrees earlier on and not much above that now and light snow falling.

Tomorrow and Saturday like many areas of Japan are probably going to be milder and we should start the day off with sunny skies. There might even be some rain down in the village around Saturday.
