Skies cleared last night and weather was beautiful this morning albeit with temps up to 4C here at the base of Tenjin.

It soon clouded over and cooled and the odd dusting of snow is coming down this afternoon before the snow expected this evening, tomorrow evening, and throughout the day on Sunday.

There's snow all around my place but it's not the thick, robust sort of pack I'd hope for by now. Just barely there and down in the village it's predominantly bare. Lets hope one of these forecast snowfalls can remedy that.
