I have some snow to report. 12cm of it as well and resorts are reporting 10-15cm of snow.

It's rather wet and heavy - not 'premium Shiga Kogen quality' - but it is snow nevertheless and welcome.

Light snow continues to fall now but it will probably stop and clear up to some degree during the day.

The forecast is looking exciting for the end of the week and into the weekend. I predict things to really kick into action by the end of the weekend.

Lots of snow please!
