The snow from last weekend was doing just fine as it's been frigidly cold ever since without any sunshine to speak of. I still had 30cm in the backyard 24 hours ago. Everything was sweet until late yesterday afternoon when humidity spiked and turned it into mashed potatoes.

It snowed last night to the tune of 5cm here at the base of Tenjindaira but it wasn't good snow and if you're out there today, good luck!

Temps are above zero and it feels like it wants to rain but hasn't done so down here as yet. Seems they have had a little rain up higher.

On the positive side, looks like things are going to cool down again this afternoon and snow is forecast this evening down in Minakami town and on the mountain. Time to add to this snow pack!
