First Snow of the Season!

Yes folks, yesterday morning was a bit chilly (5 C), and the wind was blowing a fair bit. As I was driving around town, I happened to glance up at the mountians, and the peaks were covered in snow! In September! And not just a dusting. It's still there... Today I saw the tops of the mountains behind Tokachidake were also covered with a fair bit of the white stuff.

Now, it's not down onto the slopes yet, and it will probably melt soon, but it certainly counts for something! A crazy friend of mine swears he saw a few very small flakes mixed in with the rain here in town. I cannot independently verify this, so I'll just pass it along as an exciting rumor.

It's definitely cooled off the last few days. The shell has been taken out of the closet. I'll be going down to the gym pretty quick to start getting in shape for the season. The blood is definitely starting to flow.

Hope to see you in Furano this winter.   Read more ...
