Happy Christmas!

...and hopefully it will be by the end of the day.

Rain falling overnight and it is raining this morning and remaining mild.

We were kind of expecting this rain though, so there's no need to overly worry just yet. It should be getting colder later on today with snow due to be falling sometime this afternoon. (Kagura say it is already snowing higher up there this morning and sleet being reported by Naeba early on).

There's huge debate as to how much snow we'll actually going to get over the next few days. Everyone is of course hoping for lots. The forecasts seems to agree snow later today and overnight, some on and off tomorrow and all day through Sunday - with Sunday due to be the coldest and most winter-like of the lot.

We're here now though so we are going to find out soon enough.

Snow Gods, onegai shimasu!
