More snow to report this morning.

About the same amount of fresh snow here in town as we had yesterday morning, so about 20cm or so. That's in addition to the 10-20cm that we had during the day yesterday, so I'm callling it at at least 30cm since my last report. No doubt more higher up, so we have had a very nice refresh these last two days.

It's another cold morning here and the snow is continuing to fall coming in helped on by a moderate northly wind, and is forecast to for the day easing up by tomorrow.

I'm too early with my report this morning for some of the below numbers to be updated for the day. I have just seen though that Tashiro will need to be closed again today due to wind and also all of the Kagura area apart from Mitsumata. They are reporting 30cm fresh this morning.
