So yesterday was a bit of a grim day really in terms of weather. It was still raining heavily later on in the evening.

This morning I was up quite early and it was actually quite chilly for a change. Amazing when you remember how hot things were feeling just one week ago. It is actually about 11C at the moment in town so not winter-like. Today a high of around 21C is forecast for later on in the afternoon.

It's a cloudy start with a few spots of rain earlier on (holding off at the moment), though certainly better and brighter than it was yesterday. The forecast has it clearing up and we might even get to see the sun later on in the afternoon.

Kandatsu aren't going to be able to make it for the weekend apparently - not enough snow left, and so yesterday was the last day of their season.
