Not that much to report except that there is in fact snow on the ground this morning. Not much, now; don't get too excited just yet, as nice as that white stuff looks. MAYBE three centimeters at the base of Akakan... But there is more predicted for later in the day, and it is colder than it's been so far. I hear that the managers from some of the local ski areas went over to Togakushi to get some divine intervention. Well, it is known as a power spot, and it is snowing now, so can't complain.

Just for fun, here are all the official opening dates again; we aren't going to make it, even with the snowfall predicted for today:
