Light rate here this morning and overnight at the base of Tenjin.

Fortunately it was snow up top and they have an additional 10cm.

Seems like it'll turn to snow here at my place from around noon if the forecasters get it right. We really need a decent snowfall. Looking down valley at Minakami town, it was clear and bright half an hour ago but seems to be clouding over. Light winds again today and it's been a feature of the weather so far this season.

Need some Northerlies wailing down valley and loads of that sweet, sweet pow and frigid temps coming with it.

Actually as this just goes up online the wind just started howling here from the North....
