After a couple of days of snow, another of this year's unseasonable cycles has arrived with rain falling way up the mountain. The temperature is in the positives, and that freezing level will get up to around 1800 meter sometime through the day (and it's already high).

As I have whined about before, I'm just the messenger, OK? But that freezing level just isn't going to come down to a normal (like 400 meters or lower) except maybe Friday into Saturday. This doesn't bode well for the snow - and I only just used my removal equipment for the third time or so over the past two days! Ah, the good old days of SnowJapan when the mighty, rusty snowthrower was a common theme (they really are interesting beasts, you know). Today it's a mop for the deck....
