Rain and two (so far) big rolls of thunder over the mountains this morning.

There's a real feeling of coming to the end of the season with the rain and the snow pulling away from the roads and buildings. My own area where I check the snow is holding on (we have 79cm on the ground), but look around the trees or the buildings and the ground is showing.

Some big patches yesterday on the slopes just below the Akakura Kanko Hotel, too; it's gotta be getting tough at the resorts to the south and east, which just get less snow than the Akakura area, Seki and Lotte (although I really would like to find a spot on the courses where there's anything close to three meters of snow on the ground.

But it was fun getting out skiing yesterday! Sticky snow in places, but pretty good all over, and skiing is fun. Kind of have to let this season go, but the snow will be falling again before we know it, and hopefully at more usual levels. Sounds like a closing report - that will come later!

There's still time to ski, and a lot of people were out there yesterday. Probably not so much today (and watch it if that thunder comes back).
