The weather got me yesterday (for the few of you still reading this); as soon as I finished the report, saying there was no rain, the rains started, and continued spitting through the day. Come down a bit heavier overnight; it's misty now, but that could be rain soon. And then, of course, it says heavy snow for tonight.... The Niigata prefecture long-term says up to 15cm in the mountainous areas. Crazy.

Not a great day today, with fog and gray. The wind really ripped the snowpack; around my testing area (I do try to scientifically poke the snow) we're down to under 60cm, and the edges near the road are slowly creeping in. Anything poking out of the snow becomes an island that spreads fast with the melt, especially the wind.

I know some of the ski areas will be shutting down more lifts after tomorrow; I have a feeling some may be shutting down, even if we do get snow. More information as it comes!
