A good day and night of snow - real Myoko-style, hard-to-drive snow.

It's hard to tell the total snowfall, as there was a lot of wind and drifting through the day (the cars in our drive were buried on the south/lee side, not covered on the north/windward side. Looking at quiet/level spots, the total was probably 50cm, although when it was really coming down it seemed like there would be more. On a drive up to Seki Onsen yesterday afternoon it was almost impossible to see at times, and there were a couple of cars unable to make the climb up the hill (get those chains on early, cityfolk!).

The snow is nice and soft, too. I can always tell when the snowblower cuts through the big drifts without struggling, and everything gets totally obscured by light blowing flakes. OK, it's not as scientific as when I was doing a regular snow study plot outside, but it works!

Tomorrow looks good as well, with the potential for another good heavy fall. Light snow is forecast for today as well, although at the moment it's clear over the mountains, with dark clouds off to the north over the ocean.

Hope to have more good news for you tomorrow!
