Well, a good surprise this morning. For me anyway, I wasn't expecting as much new snow as we have been treated to. Perhaps 30cm or so, maybe even more, but a bit of a wind is blowing the snow around and making it feel colder than it actually is. Right now it is -4 degrees out there, so not actually as cold as it has been. Still snowing and as so often the case this season the top of the mountain is not visible from the village.

When will we get to see the mountain in it's full glory again? Tomorrow, by the looks of things with clear sunny weather forecast for a few days. There will be a lot of excited people out with cameras up there tomorrow, I'm sure.

The Juhyo 'monsters' are coming on very nicely though and doing very well in terms of size and shape. The peak time to view them is usually around mid-February so with a bit more growth they will be looking very impressive.

The official snow depth numbers aren't taking much of an increase even though we had that new snow, but don't pay too much attention to that.
