You know it's cold when you wake up; opening your eyes and you think your standing at the foot of a volcanic steaming geyser (your breath is visible), further you really know it's cold when your laptop can not get it together to send it's 1's and 0's around it's labyrinths of internal electronic circuits.

-6 in the village as I type, so it seems to be warming up a little - but is WAS a cold night, with a sprinkling of snow overnight, whilst there was a lot more yesterday. The slopes are producing some nice soft landings for those unintended cartwheel maneuvers and so we also have an abundance of powder snow here and there. They are keeping Gondola No1 closed today - I guess the sense here is so that the weekender punters get their share of the fresh powder.

Here's looking at a fine weekend of snow shenanigans for all who get themselves up here.

In all it really seems as if the weather has got it together a little more compared to last week - temperatures are generally lower, the snow is in abundance and I think the real shock for me was being spat out of the Gunma/Niigata Shinkansen tunnel yesterday into a land laden with Marshmallow atop the trees and roofs, blanketing Niigata - a far, far cry from what was on the other side of the mountain and in Tokyo, which was sunny days...
