Morning.

Yesterday, as expected, was a rather nasty day with rain and wind. Yuck.

It is not quite as wild this morning, but it's still not particularly nice with more wind and wet expected -- though right at this moment it isn't raining.

Top lifts at both Annupuri and Grand Hirafu are not moving at the start of the day due to the weather conditions. Looks like Hirafu have the Ace Number 2 quad and King Number 3 operating at the moment.
