It's a calm and fine morning here.

Things warmed up a bit yesterday giving us some fairly heavy snow conditions out there, but the good weather probably made up for that for many people.

Shiga Kogen folk talking of 'kyaku panda' (reverse panda), referring to sunburnt faces and white where the googles have been. Always find that term quite funny.

More of the same today and tomorrow. Wednesday into Thursday will remain warm but unfortunately right now rain is on the forecast.

Is that snow I see lined up for the weekend? It might well be!
