Arrrgggghhh!

It's raining. No, it can't happen! But it is. Sadly, it's a wet morning even up here in Shiga Kogen. And here was me thinking we might avoid it...

There was actually a bit of snow falling before it turned into rain.

There has also a strong wind blowing around and so I would expect some exposed lifts and gondolas might be affected. Not sure how many people would want to be out skiing or snowboarding in these conditions, but keep an eye on official word if you are!

Otherwise I would expect other activities to be popular today. I bet those monkeys are chilling out in the onsen, cooling ignoring all the folks pointing cameras at them!

Snow coming back sometime later today and so maybe something of a reset tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed!
