Hello from here in Nozawa.

And once again we can quickly (try to) forget the rain with a fresh blanket of snow this morning.

The resort is reporting 10cm across the mountain (15cm at Uenotaira) and indeed I agree. It is not top season dry snow, but sure beats the wet of rain. Probably not going to last long today with the snow clouds due to retreat and while we may get a slight bit of snow again overnight tonight, I think there's probably a decent chance of some sunshine tomorrow.

Apologies for my mistake yesterday. While I was clearly mentioning the rain in the report (and I think that was clear), I mistakenly assigned one incorrect weather icon (it showed snow rather than rain). I hope that wasn't too confusing - it has now been corrected.
