Good morning from Yuzawa.

After a day indoors pushing keys on a keyboard, I ventured out to walk my imaginary dog last night and was surprised to have some spots of rain falling. Wasn't expecting that, I thought it ended up being just mostly cloudy for the day.

But anyway, this morning there are clear blue skies over Yuzawa and it is a beautiful morning. And that is what we are expecting for the day today. Temps are hovering around zero now with a high of about +7C forecast for later this afternoon.

Tomorrow? Bit warmer than today with mostly cloudy forecast and the chance of rain later in the day, which may change to snow by Sunday morning. (I wouldn't expect too much from it - but would be extremely happy to be wrong with that comment!)

Anyway, it's a lovely morning. Time to get away from the keyboard I think.
