More light snow last night and yesterday and flakes were gently drifting down this morning however the weather appears to have cleared.

Supposed to be more snow this afternoon and again tomorrow.

Cold temperatures are keeping the snow pack from melting away and the base level has been maintained now for 3 days running.

Appears as though things will stay cool till Wednesday after which all bets are off for the season in my opinion.

Yubiso snow festival will be held in Yubiso park tomorrow and your scribe had a hand in one of the creatures. This years slide is understandably, quite a bit smaller than usual.
