Now this is more like it!

A dusting of snowfall overnight as the rain turned into snow and it is snowing with more conviction now as I am writing this report and already a few cm of snow on the top of cars parked at the ski resorts. Bring it on, I say.

Snow clouds should be over Shiga Kogen throughout this week and so it is looking like it should be a good start to 2013. I'll bring you the first news tomorrow morning.

Happy New Years... Eve!
