Temperatures continue to be cold, with freezing fog in the later morning and snow beginning again in the early evening. Frigid winds blow from the south with increasing intensity through the day, dying off in the early evening. But the cold seems to be largely ameliorated; it is uncomfortable, but not damaging unless people fail to take precautions.
The Sun remains in the sign of the rat, Fukurokujin in the sign of the Dragon, Bishamon in the Dog, Ebisu in the Rat, and Benten in the Ox. The moon waxes further. The dominant element is Earth.

"Yeah, that tends to solve problems"
"Some problems at least. Anyway, Sujuko Mura eats will this Winter"

"I mean there's still a lot to do this summer, but they've done good work, you know. That Kaiu and old Kaori."
"Her? A construction worker?"
"No joke, I saw her the day before yesterday, in the middle of a snowstorm. Crazy, but they got a lot done"
"Shame about that bridge though."
