Back in Myoko, just in time for the first major dump of the year!

And it looks like a good one, with about 50cm so far and plenty coming down. It was really windy, too, so there's some accumulation in places (like in front of my house) where it gets a little harder to tell. Will stick the ruler in the official spot later, and give a total tomorrow. The wind keeps blowing now too.

Akakan had originally had the 15th listed as their opening day (I promise!); apparently today was the day, but they're postponing due to low snow - which looks likely to be corrected today.

So let's get going with the full reports:
