Snow is rumbling off the roof, all the trees are pasted white and its snowing moderate to heavy with limited visibility up here in the mountains. Heard Minakami town didn't get much but that's not unusual.

Mountain forecast is for this to continue for another couple hours before lightening up this afternoon. This evening, there is snow forecast for Minakami town but clear weather forecast for up here in the mountains. Will believe that when I see it. If there was a pattern emerging it could very well snow here all day as there are no signs of it backing off so far.
