It's sunny today; sun shining down on a whole lot of brown stuff out there where fields of white should be.

Some of the resorts are reporting way over a meter of snow, but when you're not running the bottom, ski-on lifts (Lotte Arai) and you can see brown patches on the main slopes (Akakura resorts, probably most others I can't see), you just know there isn't much of a base out there. I can't really blame them, too; at least you can ski there, and a lot of places not far away just can't open at all. We struggle together.

Not to jinx it, but snow is forecast for the coming days. Possibly heavy. It couldn't be better timed after the attack of the wind two days ago.

So hoping for increasing cloudiness, falling temps, and hours of toil clearing heavy snow (which I will happily dive into).
