Way more snow than expected today, and it keeps coming.

Light, powdery snow (probably the best of the season). Lots of people out to enjoy it, too, with the parking lots filling up, and the access roads clogged with cars unprepared for the worst (don't put your chains on only when you come to a stop... Might want to get those on early, city folk!).

Pretty good winds, too, so lots of blowing and drifting snow. As I've noted, my spot for measuring snow depth is pretty well sheltered, so I stand by today's big numbers, even when the ski areas don't add on as much. The total snowpack figure is really close to what they have; what falls in a day will of course settle a lot, but if you're skiing, you've got a lot of depth to play with today!

In fact, with more international travelers now renting cars, it's just gotten worse. I refuse to apologize to the idiot who decided it would be OK to block the exit to the bus turnaround at Ikenotaira this morning so he could go over to the rental shop. I hollered that he was blocking buses (and me), and he said I should be polite... Just wait until the local bus drivers "inform" you of your poor decision (you won't understand them, but you'll know they're not at all polite). Follow local rules folks! People do stuff for good reasons, and sometimes that means you have to be like everyone else and park and then walk to the rental shop. Especially when deep, blowing snow means it's really tough just to be driving around. Don't need additional roadblocks by blockheads.
