I can happily report the first snow of the season here in Hirafu as temperatures yesterday dropped and things started to feel rather winter-like.
During the morning yesterday we had sleet falling and by the time it got dark in the evening there was 1cm or so of snow on the ground here in village areas. Hurray.
This morning the snow here in the village has already disappeared and warmer conditions are ahead of us, but it is of course always great to see that first bit of snow.
Anyway, I'm going to record that 1cm. It's going to be a lot of fun seeing how much we get this coming season and comparing it with previous seasons. Do check out the archive reports from previous seasons to get an idea of how things have gone in the past - links below. Read more ...
