It's funny. I had to be away yesterday so I wasn't around to see if it rained or not yesterday. I hear it did in the afternoon/evening, even though some people insist that it didn't. I give up with some people. Take your pick! ;) And I am sorry that I wasn't here to see with my own eyes, I only just got back to Nozawa 30 minutes ago...

Anyway this morning the webcams show severely limited visibility - can you see your hand - on the upper slopes. Not so bad around base.

A high of around +5C expected today and perhaps we can get a bit of snow tonight with tomorrow set to be colder. Come on!!
