The crossed fingers didn't work I'm afraid as this morning it is raining even up here in Shiga Kogen. It was a very windy night and there is still a moderate wind blowing around but less than it was overnight. What's most surprising is just how warm it is. Here in Maruike it's +5 degrees. That's some change from just a few days ago and real spring-like territory.

So, not what we want to hear this morning. We can only hope this rain eases off sooner than later. Sad seeing the roads all wet now rather than with their usual white snow look going on. So when can we get more snow? There's a chance of some falling later today as snow, but I imagine it won't be much more than wet snow and not much of it and then after that there is potential for snowfall overnight Friday into Saturday - who knows how that will turn out. But it sure looks like it should be starting to get back colder starting tomorrow and over the weekend. So we can be hopeful.

Don't worry, no doubt winter will return.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:
