Morning from Shiga Kogen and it's a fine and a fairly calm start to the day (though perhaps some gusty winds on mountain I hear), with snow forecast to be falling later on today - and through tomorrow too.

Sunday/Monday is currently looking quite exciting according to the forecast. I like it a lot when it says 'heavy snow'.

Anyway, back to today. A chilly start to the day and just a bit more snow to report, which is basically left overs from the snow that fell yesterday after I posted my report (no fresh snowfall overnight).

Here's to those incoming snow clouds.

4th January. Yesterday was probably the last day of the New Year holidays for a lot of folk and so today we are back to something like 'normal'.
