It was bone chillingly cold out there this morning after a clear night sky. Down in the village I clocked the temp at -11C at 7am.

Snow wise they have reported a light dusting at Tenjin but I got nothing in my car park. Such a love hate relationship, after a week or so of massive dumps the snow clearing starts to wear thin but it's better than fair weather. Moderate cloud cover with blue behind it here today.

Today's photo is of yesterday's hike to the peak of Mt Tanigawa.
