This is better!

After a rather wet and rainy day yesterday - in town at least - we are back to snow this morning.

There's 10cm of fresh snow on the top of my car; Maiko Snow Resort are rerporting 10-15cm, Kagura are reporting 20cm and no number yet from Naeba. It's back to be being colder as well, certainly much colder than it has been the last few days with the temperature currently -2 degrees and expected to stay about that for the day.

It's good to see the snow on the ground again. Feels like it has been a while, and indeed it has really - a look back shows that it has been a week or so since the last decent snowfall.

Anyway it is coming down still now and forecast to be snowing for the day.

The forecast tells us to expect this snowfall to ease off by tomorrow morning some time but further snow back with us on Friday and then be snowing again through into early next week.... looks like we might be on for quite a lot of snow over the weekend.
