Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

It doesn't seem to want to quit this season!

Guess what - snow is falling. Light snow until a few minutes ago; moderate snowfall just at this moment, though just a dusting on the ground so no new cm to report. The forecast is looking rather promising for the next 24+ hours though so let's see what gets delivered...
