I was hoping that rain changed to snow, but not. It’s still raining a little bit and clouds cover mountains.
I will wait a while till mountains get clear up then go to Moiwa to see if some snow fall at upper mountain. Wet snow includes yellow dust might be sticky, we need special spring wax for this sticky snow. It’s windy today so we will feel lots colder than last few days.
The temperature will go down until Sunday. Some new snow fall is expected.
