Just, like,.... wow.

It just keeps on dumping down huge amounts of snow! I am measuring over 60cm, I am hearing more from other people - wind is probably a factor making it difficult to put a number on it. They'll all big numbers though.

And while I keep on posting these big numbers, we can probably expect another big number tomorrow morning too with snow storm conditions continuing into tomorrow.

It's really very exciting, if not a little overwhelming. In a good way.

Another day when lots of people may decided to just take an onsen rather than brave the conditions. It's a bit wild out there (though perhaps not quite as much as yesterday).

Massive.
