Morning from Yuzawa.

We had some dramatic thunder and lightning for a short time yesterday evening followed by some sudden heavy rain... not expected!

This morning it's cloudy and I see that Kagura are reporting 0cm at Mitsumata and up to 3cm on the upper slopes of the resort.

Hopefully we might get some sunshine over the weekend.

Come Sunday evening a number of ski resorts near town level will be closing for the season. Good to see them all be able to open as long as they plan - and with complete snow cover too. Details below.
