There has been lots more snow fall over the region since my report yesterday morning. The snow depths may not change much (or change at all in the case of Kagura) but resorts report 30-50cm fresh since yesterday and the snow on my car tells the story too.

It has really been coming down at times!

While there was a bit of a break in the snow earlier on this morning when I first got up, it's back again now and the forecast remains for snow to continue falling today and also into tomorrow as well.

How's that for a snowy start to the year?

Somewhat clearer and milder conditions due around Sunday.
