On this election day that seems to have most everybody I know watching - regardless of where they are from - it would seem that there are few things more important than the outcome of this political contest.

But this would be wrong, because the first snowfall of the year arrived last night at base level Akakura. It did not last, it didn't amount to much anyway, but those flakes were coming down late last night, and lingered in the shadows through the morning. And it made us happy, when there aren't a lot of things that bring joy, are there?

It looks like an interesting year in Myoko. Everyone is talking about the big snows that are supposed to fall, this being a La Niña year and all. Some will say that the praying mantis nests are higher up on the bushes than normal, but I think that is wishful observation. We probably won't have a large international guest list this coming season, at least from Europe, the US and Oceania. Have to see how things go in East Asia, and if people will be traveling to Japan (or allowed in!). The good news is that social distancing might not be much of a problem....

We'll keep bringing the snow info, though! We're still here! You still want to come (we want to welcome you here). I put in more equipment so we can give more accurate weather information, too.

Be back the next time it snows!
