Good morning from Yuzawa.

It's good to see fresh snow on the ground. Not as much as we were hoping for perhaps - I am measuring 6cm.

Kagura aren't reporting any fresh snowfall numbers this morning - so much more interesting than 'official snow depths' which are... far less useful (if you ask me). I see Naeba are reporting 10-20cm of fresh snow.

So it looks like conditions higher up at the open places should be pretty good.

But anyway, snow clouds should be over the region for today and perhaps through Thursday and then back with us on Sunday. As I write this report the snow has eased off a little and there's even a bit of sky on show in some areas, but I am hearing it is snowing just to the north in Minamiuonuma.

Patience!

(Or Kagura/Naeba).
