Well, the forecast may have been for a little bit lighter snow overnight, but it just kept on coming all through the day, into the night and is still coming down. We are now living and driving in tunnels—the roadside walls are just that tall. So where the official word was maybe 10cm, there's a lot more out there.

The trains are not running right on schedule today, which is not that uncommon with this amount of snow (especially between Myoko and Kurohime); the primary schools are also closed, which almost never happens. The word is that the officials are worried about the cornices that are hanging off the south sides of almost all buildings.
