Morning from Yuzawa.

Well, yesterday was (guess what) mild again and it was raining when I was outside late evening. And the roads are wet this morning too.

Kagura is reporting 1cm of snow up there, but I note that GALA Yuzawa are reporting rain. Looks like Maiko is getting a bit of snow up top.

Various lower areas are struggling once again so the best advice is to head up high for the better snow cover.

Hopefully we'll get another dose of relief on Thursday when snow is still forecast. Just how much, I wouldn't dare guess!

The forecast for the day today and tomorrow is generally cloudy.
