Winter is back! Snow is back!

Nothing like a good, fresh coat of the white stuff to restore the look of the town... the snow was getting a bit ratty looking there....

Not a huge accumulation so far - perhaps 15cm, with some blowing.

Nice, fairly large flakes are falling right now, and what has fallen is pretty light. A little more, and we have the makings of some good powder (keep an eye up high on wind-loading, though; these cycles of warm/rain/sun followed by layers of wind-deposited snow are pretty scary).

A good day to go back outside again; I know a lot of people (like the guys who recognized me this morning, and who went to Nagano for some city fun yesterday) did anything but ski. It happens, right? There's lots to do here, luckily, when the weather and hills don't cooperate.

Funny on the temperatures today: my car, the best and most accurate source, said -5°C at the base of Akakan at 8am.
