Warm yesterday, turning the snow nice and slushy and then freezing at the end of the day, for some lovely crunchy crud on the courses. This is what grooming machines are for, of course....

Things are changing in the weather area, though; the sun is shining right now, with rain blowing in off the mountain (it's probably already snow up high on the mountain). There was a pretty steady SW wind overnight (shovels and some small items blew off the porch), but the wind is now moving around to the WNW. Looking at the conditions right now, it really should be snowing: the winds are coming straight off the Japan Sea from the northeast, but there is a funny front along the coastline that's causing winds to come from the west along the coast.

Another huge dump for Joetsu City down on the coast (now that they've almost dug out after the last huge snowfall)? An interesting weather day, hopefully one that turns toward more snow for us here!
