Sorry for the late day; high winds through the night filled in the front of my house (although we really didn't get that much more than the Niigata Prefecture prediction of 15cm), meaning a lot more snowplowing than I thought. That was compounded a bit with that wet, soft, warm snow underneath that was making cars slide and nice cold hard surfaces turning mushy. Anyway, got the clearing done, then time to take some folks out snowshoeing, and now I'm finally here at the keyboard!

It was pretty out there today, with all the snow sticking up in the trees. Lots of really beautiful drifts and swirls on the surface of the snow (snowshoeing does let you appreciate the woods and hills and animals and trees....). Not a lot of snow ahead, although we could use a good reset out there in the natural world. Plenty out there for snowshoeing, though.
