Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

OK so we got a lot of snow overnight!

This morning Kumanoyu are reporting 50cm of fresh snowfall. Yakebitaiyama are reporting 40cm.

I have measured 44cm. Wind has been a factor, though not as much as we thought it might be. It's cold and snowy and we can probably expect more of that through today and tomorrow.

-----

As is often the case especially on a morning like this, you can happily ignore the 'official snow depth numbers'. Coz they be silly! ;)
