Here's something novel to report. Blackout! It seems that large areas of northern Nagano have suffered a power cut this morning, including us here in Shiga Kogen. Sometime around 6am it started as far as I can tell, coming back sometime after 9am.

Things seem to be getting back up as normal now but there'll likely be some late lifts this morning. I think they have to warm them up or something ;)

Some sun out now as well and blue skies appearing from behind all the cloud. A moderate wind still blowing some of the snow around.

Not that much snow lined up on the weekly forecast now, perhaps some snow showers here and there but more of a chance of seeing some sun I think. Fingers crossed it'll stay cold.
