Good morning.

Just a dusting really since my last report, so there are no new cm to add this morning. There is still a lot of cloud around and it's all shades of white and grey, but we may well get some sunshine today - and indeed over the weekend too. It is going to be a milder too and there's not a whole lot of snow on the forecast into early week. We shall see, as they say.

There's lots of super-excitable marketing messaging going on right now. (I always think - it must be so tiring having to keep that up all the time!). But currently no firm news about what might happen come Saturday from Hirafu and Annupuri, the resorts that were planning to open on that day. Hopefully I will have such news tomorrow. I might post a bit later in the morning tomorrow in order to gather any such news.

If I put an exclamation point inside a bracket like above, do I need a full stop on the other side? Answers on a postcard please.

As you can tell, really in need of those first tracks!
