Yesterday the snow was disappearing fast; it rained; it was unusually warm.

Today we have something close to a blizzard; it's cold; there's ice on the slopes.

It just keeps getting weirder this year, so let's just roll with it and enjoy what we can.

So far today there hasn't been much accumulation - probably five cm or so - but it's coming down pretty steadily. Maybe we've gotten a slight reprieve on the downward slide in snowpack. I think it's actually worse out there than the resorts are reporting (and I'm talking to you, Seki Onsen); I dug a practice pit in the golf course just opposite to Akakan, and found a depth of just under 90cm. Pretty scary to see this at the end of February, with one-third of the season (hopefully) ahead.

There could be heavy snow on Wednesday, so there is something fun to look forward to.
