Morning from Shiga Kogen.

After a drizzly damp and grey morning yesterday - with even a little snow coming down at one point (apparently, I didn't see it) - we are starting this Tuesday morning with some blue sky and the sun shining down on us.

It is a cold morning but the sun should be warming us up during the day and similar kind of weather is likely tomorrow.
