Morning.

Yesterday the news told me that it was 22.8C in Yuzawa yesterday! That's warm. And it definitely felt warm, though I was surprised to see that number.

This morning the clouds are back, along with some fog by the looks of things, and rain. We should expect the chance of rain today, and might be lucky to get some snow overnight.

Tomorrow will be the last day of the season for Maiko Snow Resort and Muikamachi Hakkaisan.
