The snow started last night, and it's still going. It's not exactly a heavy snowfall by Myoko standards, but a nice accumulation of fresh stuff. The forecast is for snow throughout the day, and the really heavy stuff falling tomorrow.

Got the machines out today, so we're ready for more. I suppose to people outside we're crazy: it's like mowing your yard and having everything neat and trim, and the next morning the yard is overrun with weeds. And you do it again. But we complain while we actually take pride in getting things in order (and then going up the hill to enjoy that snow, of course). Especially fun when, for me in the past few years, you get to play with some rideable heavy machinery to clear snow. More power! Warm cabin! The simple joys of Snow Country....

One note on the reports: I've noticed that, more than usual, the figures and reporting by the resorts is a bit, ah, uneven. Tough times, I know, and staffing is down, so we'll certainly give them a break, but the results can be a bit puzzling (see Seki Onsen below)
