Snow arrived yesterday afternoon and continued till late last night but it was the same soft, slightly wet stuff that Tokyo was hit by and not enough fell to really have any impact. What did fall was trumped by the rain that came in this morning. Skies are still overcast here and having just come back from the mountain, conditions are not good. The rain seems to have combined with what snow did fall, to create a slushy mess that it's really hard to keep speed on;
As the water percolates through the snow pack and once things harden up this evening, I expect we will be back to decent Spring corn by tomorrow but lets see.

There is still plenty of weather about in the form of clouds and the forecast is potentially for snow this afternoon and tomorrow but I'll believe it when I clear it off the car park. The weekend weather forecast looks good with blue skies and light winds predicted for the weekend.
