The cold front has arrived in Minakami in style. It is very chilly out there and the snow is coming down. Bit of a wind around which is making it feel colder and it is blowing the fresh snow around.

This weather looks as if it is here to stay for a few days at least, though there should be a few breaks in the clouds. The resorts are ready for a top-up so any snow it brings will be welcome.

Wrap up warm and fingers crossed for a white Christmas.
