There was no hint yesterday of what would happen overnight; it snowed a bit through the day, we had some patches of sun. I just happened to be driving north toward Joetsu and along the coast to Charmant Hiuchi—the sky started going black, rain and wet snow started pounding down, and the wind almost blew the car off the highway.

Back in Myoko, that meant that shortly after the sky opened up, and insane snow started falling. The total is not reflected in any of the official reports—local talk is of a meter or more. The traffic situation agrees with this; trains and buses are delayed or not running; access to the ski areas has been slowed by traffic jams—put some chains on before you get here! Don't even think that you can make it without 4WD and snow tires without chains (and then you might not).

The snow has let up a little bit, but it's still coming down pretty good at times. It's beautiful, don't get me wrong, but it is wonderfully crazy.
