The sun's out again - this is getting a bit repetitive this year!

A little snow, then a day of sun. Nothing anything to improve the snowpack, as today's figures show. Even Seki Onsen has started to bring the figures down (although, the 300cm figure still shows that little resort's eternal optimism. Love you guys).

I'm also sad to see the potential heavier snow toward the end of the week has once again diminished to "snow showers" and "light snow," terms I have come to hate. Mostly because this year, light snow really means little light crystals that hardly amount to anything, where in most years we'd have light fall of typical big flakes, and maybe 10cm. THAT is light snow.

OK, I'm getting pessimistic and gloomy again, and it is, after all a nice sunny day, and we're in one of the lovely places of the earth, right? Looking out my window, I also realize that the brush has indeed slowly gotten pushed down a bit by the creeping snow, so it might be fun to get out on snowshoes or light touring skis, even if most of the backcountry still is pretty hard to get through in sections. it just doesn't look like late February....

Oh, but I am adding some snow from yesterday; there was more than 1cm, especially a little bit to the north, and a bit more added on. Just to keep us honest, truthful and accurate.
