Morning from Shiga Kogen.

The sun is out this morning - it's going to be a fine last-day-of-the-long-weekend.

I'm looking at the forecast for tomorrow night and through Wednesday and it's actually looking rather exciting. 'Heavy snow' --- could it be? We'll just have to see, let's hope we won't be disappointed. Personally I'd rather be surprised by not expected snow than be disappointed at a no-show!

It will be busier than a normal Monday, being a national holiday, but things should be quieter in the afternoon as people make their way back to real life.
