Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

We did get some rain last night. Unfortunately, it was heavy at times. Very spring like feel to it, which I really dislike saying in February. But it has to be said that such events are not unknown - so nothing to panic about.

This morning it is a mixed bunch of conditions. Rain/sleet/light snow. Bit wet, and the snow that is falling in some places is definitely not top draw quality snow (but any kind of snow definitely better than rain). As it gets a bit colder during the day, hopefully it'll be snowing...

It's foggy too so generally limited visibility.

All in all, it's not the most inspiring of mornings!

After today we will be having a few days of clearer skies before a return to snow due around Thursday.
