Suddenly, we remember how useful electricity is. When we ain't got it, those lifts aren't rolling!

Power cuts across this region of northern Nagano this morning from sometime early morning until sometime after 9am. Obviously it stopped the resort from opening as normal and as I write this I don't think things are quite back to normal yet even though the eleccy is back with us. Should be very soon though as everything gets started up.

OK anyway, it's a mostly cloudy morning here, snow easing off possibly around the same time as the electicity! Some breaks in the cloud here and there, and even a bit of sun peaking through.

Top Yamabiko area reporting 15cm of fresh and 10cm at Uenotaira. You know where to head to!

Tomorrow will likely be a little warmer and maybe back to some more snow around Wednesday.
