The waiting is over: the real snow is falling. Meaning cars were transformed overnight into mounds of snow, and we finally have some snow walls growing along the roadsides. It's very nice, light powder snow, too, quietly sluffing off the rooftops rather than rumbling down.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: call in sick, get out in the powder. I'll report later on how much snow actually fell, as the offical report isn;t out yet.

Update, evening

It snowed, and it snowed a lot today. Some cold winds from the north at times, but it didn't matter—the first real Myoko-style snowfall of the year was going on all around us.

Right now the snow has slowed down a bit, but it will be interesting to see how much will be added to the figures tomorrow morning.
