After a pretty nice day of light, ongoing snow, things really got turned on towards the end of yesterday, with big, light flakes falling heavily through the night and into this morning. Since I shoveled off a container-house roof yesterday, I can tell you with some confidence that 50cm or so have fallen in total (a reminder that the snow-removal work in Myoko is a process, not a final goal).

I think it's colder than the resorts are reporting (unusually); the car and my outside thermometer are both reading -7°C at 7:30, while most are saying -3°C or so. The wind isn;t too strong yet, although the reports have some wind (and chill) possible.

Looks like snow will continue through tomorrow, with some sun possible after that. Things change fast, though, so keep visiting the Snow Japan weather page for Akakura.
