Snow flakes are falling on my head...

Furano does seem to have flicked the winter weather switch to on, and the sun is out so hopefully the base will get a bit wet and melty and form just what is needed for long term resort coverage. Indications are good but Mother Nature is a minx. The gravel trucks were out at some point because the roads were treated by 7am when we took these photos. The snow flurries have abated right now, but there should be on-off snow showers for the next two days acording to the forecast. Oop, actually, flakes now falling again.

Photo 1 Furano resort Kitanomine Zone at about 7am today. Light covering of snow evident.
Photo 2 Looking back towards Furano Shi (town). Flags still because it's windless.
