Snow did fall yesterday, but it really didn't amount to anything, well, what we really need. Just a dusting really, while that breakable crust layer underneath just seems to be be getting thicker. A friend is out to look at the conditions outside the runs, but I think it will be fairly horrible. Lots of sasa (bamboo grass) and not enough snow to keep your tips, edges, arms, etc. from getting tied up.

I keep watching the weather patterns, too, and it's really unusual, with none of the steady winds from the northwest that usually bring us plenty of white stuff. There's a persistent front that extends from the Koreas to Noto Peninsula to the west, re-routing the winds in all directions but what we want.

I feel as bad as all of you, readers; just trying to make sense of this really unusual season. So far. Let's think that way.
