As expected, it's calm this morning here in Shiga Kogen after the wilder conditions of yesterday.

It's a beautiful morning and not as cold as it has been. (Still down in the negative numbers of course, though.)

There's some more snow since my report, and I'm probably going to be having more to report tomorrow morning as well with clouds moving in later on today bringing more snowfall.

Snow due from later today though until around Tuesday and then clearer skies on Wednesday and Thursday.

Heavy snow > fine weather > heavy snow > fine weather > = perfect weather cycle if you ask me!
