Morning from Yuzawa.

We may be in the middle of the Golden Week holodays, but the weather sure isn't acting like it.

We continue to have damp/wet conditions as we wait for some clearer and sunnier skies and some early May warmth too. Perhaps today things will begin to clear up - seems like it now with rain apparently easing off - and the forecasts do tell us that we should be enjoying clearer skies from today through Monday.

For now though there is a lot of cloud of varying shades of grey around.
