Another cold morning (aren't they all here?!) and just cloudy right now. Snow is forecast for later on in particular though so I should have more than the dusting that we have this morning to report tomorrow.

Early report today as I am off on my way to Yamagata city this morning. Lots of people coming up the other way by the looks of things.
