Little dusting of snow overnight and it's lightly snowing yet again.

I want heavy snow!

Anyway, clouds are hovering high in the sky, winds are light, its not all that bad. 5cm of fresh up top at Tenjin.

Temps continue to hover around zero degrees at my place, for there to be a change, we need it a little colder so fingers crossed.

The forecast is calling for light snow or snow showers henceforth and it's set to come in heavier from the 14th. May it please be so.
