Yesterday was a beauty of a day.

The sun was out, the skies were blue, the snow was great (well it was at Kagura where I was). An excellent day.

I heard reports from people enjoying themselves at Iwappara, NASPA, GALA and Joetsu Kokusai as well and it seemed that everyone was very pleased with the day.

This morning we have mostly clear skies over Yuzawa and the sun is out.

There is a lot of grey cloud to the north once again though, and it is actually forecast to be cloudy for the day today. Yahoo weather even has rain and snow forecast for the day (including the 'now' period). Forecasts have got it so wrong more than a few times this season it might well just end up being another fine day.

Staying with forecasts, there's less snowfall on it now (for the weekend) than there was just yesterday which is disappointing. It still looks like we might have to put up with some rain sometime before the weekend though hopefully it will be turning into snow (or better still start as snow). Temperatures may rise to about +6C in town tomorrow so it does look like it's going to be a mild few days.

Enough of that. One thing about this season is how difficult the weather has been to read... for now it should be another fine morning and I'm going to go and enjoy it!
