Woke up to light sleet falling this morning but was over at Hodaigi by 9am and snow was falling there. It's now coming in at the base of Tenjin moderately, boarder line heavy.

Winds are light, it was pretty warm this morning but has cooled off now. All that snow has settled down to 2.1m at Tenjindaira. Looks like this is set to intensify this evening but who really knows.

The forecast for later on in the week has me quaking in my boots. Tuesday night looks like it could bring a lot of snow. Just hope I've got my blower operational by the time it arrives.
