Yesterday was something of a wild day! Strong winds and snow, wet at first but bigger fluffier flakes later on, it felt like mid winter again. We even had a spell when the Kanetsu expressway was closed causing a bit of congestion but that was cleared up by the end of the day.

It's difficult to put a number on how much snow there was because of the wind as well, but I had to move about 20cm off the top of the car in the evening and there's another 15-20cm this morning. So I make that 35-40cm. Resorts around town are saying up to 40cm of fresh snow as well.

(Kagura are confusing me somewhat - they reported 20-30cm yesterday, and they are reporting 40cm 'until this morning'. So it's not clear whether that's a total of 60-70cm, or a total of 40cm. I'm guessing the former but on calling them the person on the line didn't know, and - guess what - the official snow depth number hasn't budged by a cm! Whatever the reality.... there's a lot of fresh snow up there).

This is all of course excellent for mid-late March and it will have really patched over that icy stuff we had two days ago.

The snow has stopped now, it's a chilly morning and there's more and more blue sky over the region. Should be a fine day for both snow and weather.

People in the region today will be feeling very lucky with the timing. Excite!
