[Originally posted earlier this morning - late appearance due to technical issues]

It's all very limited this morning. Strong winds are seeing to that. Rain as well from here in Kumanoyu where I am at the moment and for tonight rain and those strong winds are forecast to continue. Seems that lots of central Japan is getting much of the same today.

This will fingers crossed ease off later in the day tomorrow and we should be back to calmer weather conditions early in the coming week.
