More fine weather here in Zao this morning though not quite as 'blue' and the chance of some snow later on it would seem.

Is it really going to rain Thursday? Looks like it as things warm up somewhat, but we can always hope to avoid it.

Come the weekend it seems all of Japan is expecting rather warmer conditions. No doubt there will be lots of talk of spring going on.
