My dear friend, Elliott:
Just thought you might like to know that for the first time this year, the weather forecast for Nagoya (as close to Gifu as you can get, almost) is announcing a low BELOW zero. You heard it here first: -1 is the forecasted low for Tuesday, December 19. The high is +9.
With fond hopes that this will allow you to sleep better at night (maybe a little warmer in the heart, too),
tropical julie :)
