First snowfall here at the base of mighty Mt. Myoko. OK, we did have an overnight dusting a week or so ago (it's easy to forget dates when there's so much to try to get ready before the snow hits. Mostly there....).

This is the first morning when we see ongoing snowfall, the grasses are getting bent down and the tree branches are just starting to actually turn white. I'm not actually going to start the depth count today, though, because it's just not sticking to the ground. Less then one cm, anyway.

It is probably not going to last, but it's always exciting to see. That smell of fresh snow, too.... Why is it different from rain? Reminds me I still have a few bamboo wands to put out to mark the driveway and the woodpile (the main ones are all ready). Oh, yeah, and need to tie up the hydrangeas—see that I mean?

Actually, rain is forecast entering into next week, and it will warm, but with some snow we can see the season coming. The ski resorts are starting to open, hopefully in just over two weeks! It always seems impossible that the jungle around the house could every get covered with snow, but add a little wet early snow and suddenly today the foliage is getting pushed down and the views are really opening up.

Love those changes of season. Will be back when we get some real snow! Might even happen tomorrow.
