I was just looking at some of the other reports - looks like the weather was pretty bad in many places yesterday. And it was pretty bad here too.

But there is good news!

Yes, the good news is that the rain turned into snow overnight and there has actually been some snow fall up here in Shiga Kogen.

6cm outside my place and my friend over near Yakebitaiyama is saying nearly 10cm. Nice.

Not enough to kick things into action of course but a good end to a bad day!

Keep an eye on the forecast for mid week as it's looking promising in terms of snow and a return to proper winter temperatures.

Currently (very) limited areas of the Kumanoyu, Yakebitaiyama, Takamagahara Mammoth and Ichinose Family resort areas of Shiga Kogen are open.
