The snow that came in heavily at first last night was soon accompanied by very strong winds ripping down the Tanigawa valley. Very hard to figure out how much snow has actually fallen as there were bare spots and 30cm deep drifts. I'll take the conservative line and call it 5cm but up top I expect they have had quite a lot in various spots.

Right now its moderately snowing, winds are quite strong still but nothing like last night, the forecast is for this to clear up and turn sunny by noon.

Tomorrow is forecast to be cloudy with an umbrella sign for Minakami town in the evening. The next snow is pegged for Thursday which suits me just fine as the throttle cable on my blower needs some TLC and my back could use a couple days off too.
