Yesterday was one for the hardy out there. It ended up being heavy snow for most of the day and cold, moderate to strong winds in most places out on the mountains. The reward for getting out there was large amounts of high quality untouched snow, so the choice is there.

This morning things have calmed down a lot. There's nothing more than a breeze and it is not snowing. In fact, while the forecast tells us that today it should still be snowing, right now at the moment it's just cloud over Minamiuonuma and even some hints of the sun shining through over Yuzawa - I can see lots of blue skies opening up as the clouds seem to be making way for them. Could it turn into a lovely clear day? Very possible. But also possible that the clouds will move in again and bring that big more of snow. For now though, a fine start in Yuzawa and those snow conditions will be excellent.

Kagura are reporting 10-20cm of snow since yesterday, while I moved about 10cm off my car this morning. Right now it is -2 degrees in Yuzawa.
