Good morning from Hakuba.

I'm posting this at 12 noon and the thermometer is saying... 19C!

Yikes.

It is more cloudy today with a hazy feel to proceedings.

But what's that... snow at high elevations tonight (hard to imagine), with rain lower down? Who knows, with the somewhat unpredictable nature of parts of this season!

It has been fabulous weather to be out and about but this March must be the quickest that it has ever turned into proper spring for a while. Not the huge March Madness snowfall we were hoping for. We can't do anything about it of course but when we sit down and look at the numbers it will be interesting to see how they shape up.
