It's a day of promise in Myoko today; the sun is out to the east, so it's a nice day, but snow is already starting to fall over the mountains. Everybody's bracing for another good snowfall tonight and into tomorrow; a very exciting way to move toward a white, slidey Christmas.

Sorry not to get a report out yesterday; a last-minute trip to get goodies for the holidays from the big-city big stores. Hard to get a lot of the bulk Western stuff out here (one of the only downsides to living at the base of Mt. Myoko). The season pass is now in hand, so there's no reason to leave for the rest of the season!

I can say that the snow depth did go down a bit; there was a lot of meting, so the sun did a little bit of removal work—but all within the normal conditions for this time of year
