Ok here are a few pics I took around my house to give you an idea of how much snow we got!

My street before we cleared all the snow from the road

This afternoon once a path was made through the snow.

In total between all of us we actually got the other side roads cleared enough to get cars through, problem is the road that leads down to our estate hasn't been bulldozed today and if it isn't bulldozed tomorrow either no one will be going anywhere.

Kofu is all over the weather news today Snowdude...and you got more up there where you are I know... Dig, man, DIG!! :sj-lol: :wave:

 

Yes us Yamanashi people are becoming famous for getting very heavy and the most snow in Japan, hehe, I quite like that!

Haha yeah been digging all day, me and everyone else that is. Im well knackered, but between us all we dug enough snow away to just about be able to get one car out of our drive ways.

Now just got to wait for the bulldozer to clear the road tomorrow or the next day so that we can actually leave our estate!

Skiing is cancelled tomorrow that is for sure, I reckon I might go for a slide Monday, assuming the roads are clear enough to drive on.

Wow! Thats a lot of snow!

 

Unfortunately I won't be going out tomorrow - high winds and avalanche risk mean most of the good stuff at Kagura is inaccessible and my other idea of driving somewhere like Fukushima or Tochigi is a non-starter as all the expressways are closed!

My snow day tomorrow is cancelled too. I was booked on to a bus tour to Maiko, leaving from Niigata City. I got a call about 2 hours ago to say it was cancelled due to the weather. The report up here in Kaetsu is looking dodgy, strong wind and maybe even rain.

 

Looks like a lay day for me.

As far as being manageable we are already past that amount actually. I guess about 50cm-1 metre per time is doable, but 2 metres at a time is stretching it. Having said that I love snow and lots of it so I am well happy at the moment, but if we get another dump of 1 metre or more it is going to be a major problem of where to put the snow as we already have snow walls over three metres tall all over the village.and the space between all the houses are full of snow.

But after a crappy rather dry January I am enjoying this very good February as long as we get regular top us that will be good.
