Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

I was over at Kumanoyu last night for some nighta and with the calmer conditions and passing of the storm it was a really nice evening. Not to mention the really great snow conditions too.

This morning light snow was falling again and there is a bit of fresh to report but it has eased now - well, here in Maruike - and just cloudy.

Snow clouds don't seem to be going to be far from us going into New Year, but we may see some clearer skies over the next few days. We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, there's some fine conditions to enjoy.
