Nice big snowflakes.

It's so good to see them falling from the sky this morning. I missed them!

There's not a huge amount so far but it snowing really nicely at the moment and this should result in a good new layer of snow if it continues. And it should as well, at least through the day today. And hopefully maybe after a break tomorrow morning, sometime tomorrow into Sunday as well. There's more due on Monday as well. So the forecast is in place, now we just need to sign off on the delivery!

Everyone will be very happy if this continues. Perhaps even the monkeys down there in the Jigokudani Monkey Park. Actually, I wonder if they like the snow...?!

Hopefully I'll be able to bring you a good report tomorrow morning too...
