Yesterday was dust on crust and one of the worst days of the season so took a troop of people under the mountains to Kagura and found the same there.

It has snowed a little overnight at the base of Tenjin so hopefully more up top but hearing Minakami town got the same amount as here which often indicates a Pacific dominant weather system and likely another bust of a day.

It is actually snowing lightly now at the base of Tenjin but looking down valley to the town I see blue skies so my fingers are firmly crossed but I have strong suspicions it ain't going to be great.

The Tenjin forecast is for light snow over the next four days, Minakami town forecast is for clear weather. We need a good reset so hopefully its forthcoming!
