Hello from Shiga Kogen.

Well, I wasn't really expecting this (though maybe that is because my mind is on some other things right now).

But we have 12cm of fresh snowfall that I have measured on the ground this morning.

Yakebitaiyama are reporting 10-15cm; Kumanoyu are reporting 20cm.

Clearer conditions likely later on with sunshine and spring like warmth tomorrow.
