Biggest snow fall in a couple of years is in the works here. Woke up to 1m solid in front of my place.

Carnage on the roads, Tenjin shut, no top lifts running at Hodaigi but Okutone is all systems go.

It's pretty windy, snow is falling heavily and this could continue for another day if the forecast is on point.
