Yesterday drizzly sleet 'stuff' was falling in Shiga Kogen, but thankfully early this morning it has turned into something more like what you can call 'snow'. Actually falling quite nicely now. More like it!

For the moment it's just a slight cover but if the forecast is right and it snows during the day hopefully we can build up.

Snow might ease off tomorrow but hopefully back before Saturday.

Depending on how much falls of course, there might well be more of Shiga Kogen open come Saturday...
