The flakes may be small, but they keep on a'fallin. On top of the 10cm I reported yesterday, it's kept building up with an additional 23cm (at least in the spot where I stuck my ruler; let's say 20 to be more scientific). And it keeps on falling; it's beginning to look a lot like the Myoko we know and love - well, the snow walls aren't there yet, but there is now some hope.

I'm happy to add that, in the time I've been writing, it's picked up quite a bit, and it really is starting to look Myoko-rashii ("like"; your Japanese suffix for the day).

People are reporting some pretty good fun in the backcountry as well, even if it is still pretty bushy out there. The price of being basically a rain forest in summer (the green season is pretty nice, if often wet).

Gotta get this out! I keep looking out the window and talking backcountry with the locals.... it's looking good to sum things up!
