Yesterday was an interesting one. The snowfall eased off and the clouds were stubborn for most of the morning but around lunchtime we did get some blue skies and sunshine over Yuzawa with cloud moving back over later in the afternoon. And quite a clear evening with a beautiful moon.

This morning I got up around 7:30am and looked out of the window hoping to see heavy snow falling only to see.... calm and quite clear skies. Not again, was my first thought.

But soon after light snow started falling and now (9:15am) it is snowing heavily. It looks and feels like it is set in as well. Proper snow this time, it's really coming down. Brilliant! I'm logging 3cm so far since the snow started.

Kagura reported 1-2cm overnight and Maiko reported 0cm, but that was before this morning snow started and it if does continue like this today we should be on for some decent numbers by tomorrow. Exciting.

Forecasts do say it should be snow all today and most of tomorrow as well. They disagree somewhat on what will happen Tuesday but it could definitely be one of those clear sky days after a storm and the perfect time to be here. We'll see.

For now we want as much snow as possible out of this storm.

I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow morning.
