Still waiting on the 40 years storm.

It was clear this morning, started snowing around 10am but it's light snow and I stay in contact with someone in Hakuba pretty regularly. For the big storms, like the one we're expecting, it usually hit's there first, lands here a few hours later and that pacific weather system and Kanto plain to our East just causes it to sit here on top of Mt Tanigawa and my North facing car park down here in the valley. As of noon, they are still waiting in Hakuba so whatever we are getting now, isn't really it.

Forecast is for tonight and it's still for heavy snow and continuous snowfall for the next few days. We shall see.

The base up on Tenjin is at 90cm, the base around my place at 700m altitude is minimal. We need a meter tonight to lay those bushes over and then more to build up some fun stuff and round out the gullies. Lets hope this is it! I will try to post early tomorrow morning and anyone shooting for the Minakami area, if they get a meter up on Tenjin, it's not likely to open. Safety first which is perfectly understandable.
