Plenty of snow on the TV news right now. Showing Aomori at the moment.

Sukayu in Aomori seems to have gotten the most snow with 28cm.

Not bad for October!

A lot of areas in Hokkaido got a nice coating too.

It will probably all melt this coming weekend as it warms up, but some very early season snow is always good well that is as long as it doesnt snow here for another couple of weeks or so otherwise I will have a lot of buggered vegies.

Looks like the frost has ruined some of my cabages.

It was white here this morning too, still is where it is shaded from the sun,

But not from snow, from frost!

Looks like just a sprinkling on the top of Kagura. Think I saw a bit up there on the top of Hakkai-san as well yesterday morning (the mountain not the skijo).

Will be gone sharpish though now.

Here are a couple shots of Kawaba Skijo from my house the last two mornings.

Probably not all that much snow, but still exciting to see :)

I don't technically live in Numata, but I live really close. Only takes me about 25 minutes to get to Kawaba Skijo this time of year (that time usually increases a bit in winter though ;) ).

Yes the power lines are excellent and in fact their presence should be celebrated !!!

 

They remind us of mans dominion over nature by virtue of our innate and unsurpassed ability to generate electricity ........ :confused:

Is that Kamui?

 

Nope, not Kamui.....

 

Guess the ski jo?

 

(If no one bites, I'll just tell you where it is in a few hours!)

I shall take a total stab in the dark, right out the blue and guess that its Kamoi ski-jo?

Definitely neither steep enough nor gnarly enough for it to be Granview!

 

Tubby has got it, genius! It's Kamoi-dake, in Utashinai/Takikawa area.

 

That's Sunagawa coal power station in the foreground. A really beautiful addition to the rural Hokkaido skyline.
