Weather forecasts have been jumping around like crazy here lately.

Turns out yesterday we didn't get the strong winds which shut a lot of places down. Winds were fierce in the morning but not enough to stop the show at Tenjin or Hodaigi. Tenjin was literally snowed on all day, tracks filled in no time type conditions. The mountain I think reported zero snow yesterday but I was sinking at least 40cm deep in parts. The areas exposed to the Southerly wind had more like 10cm of snow.

This morning I was expecting snow but instead we have clear weather. Forecast is for significant snow this afternoon and tonight and snow forever more after that. Lets hope the forecasters have it right this time!
