    Currently dumping down in Hakuba and starting to stick to the road. It began snowing when it was 4 degrees too. Throw in some thunder. Another powder day coming up maybe :)

    Well, the Tokyo & Yokohama was a degree or two below normal for March, the cherry blossoms in Yokohama are late.
    However, looks like 20 degrees+ today, and the blossoms are already just coming out, so I'd expect them to be fully out by this afternoon.
    Peak time should be this weekend.

    I saw that Shiga had another 10cm yesterday morning before the sun came back out.

    Snowing in Echoland atm. Wet but snow :) We should get a 5-10 cms on the hill today but it is meant to warm up later so nothing to get too excited about. It's been a ripper season and still top to bottom skiing here on the 3 big resorts that are open.

    Raining in Yokohama, cold and getting colder....
    Below 7 degrees now (after 10 overnight), cold day for this time in April.
