Morning all.

Lots of cloud around this morning but the roads are looking wet after some rain overnight... not raining just at the moment though. Just cloudy.

There was the hope of some snow today and tomorrow though it doesn't quite feel like that is going to happen - and if it does, it won't be much. I'd be glad to be wrong on that score of course, so let's see how conditions change. Both today and tomorrow the local forecast is for a high of 4C-5C in town.

We should be back to clearer skies by the weekend.

So we definitely feel like we are into spring season now. There's lots of fun still to be had... just a different flavour of fun from peak season conditions.

And remember, Kagura is open for another two and a half months!!
