Another early morning--kids' race in Myoko--so the report comes without today's official snow reports, No snow fell during the day yesterday, anyway; it was a pretty nice day up until the afternoon, when it looked like a new front was moving in, then the day ended with the stars sparkling above.

This morning, though, it looks like we're on the edge of yet another big snowfall. At 7 am, the snowfall is really picking up, and the news is full of heavy snow warnings and possible traffic interruptions. If you're coming to Myoko, the highways are usually slow but open (but there will be chain restrictions, but you're smart and know better than to wait until you're just below the resort to put on your chain....right?). The trains often stop or are delayed on the stretch between Kurohime and Arai--meaning where Myoko is--but buses are added when this happens. You may be delayed, though, so be ready!

The reports below are yesterday's figures.
