Not to rub it in...

But it's starting to snow like a freak in the mountains near Tokyo. We should get about 3 feet of snow between now and this Friday evening in Shiga. I'm feeling a powder experience coming on. Now I'm wondering why I'm going to Colorado this February...we may have the epic year we've needed over here!

I wish I could go to Japan, were losing snow here from fucking rain...Well probably lose another 3 feet by Friday.

Record breaking snowfall in November and rain / spring conditions in January...Ya I'd stay in Japan.

Japan

It was really crappy for the last 2 seasons. Good snow in Hokkaido and Hakkoda but crappy going south. So, I spent a lot of time in Colorado. This season looks good and old hands say next year will be better...maybe a record year.

I read that BC was getting rain so I assume that's the whole NW. I hate rain in the winter. It's like a missed opportunity.

Good luck my friend. What rains today, snows tomorrow.

Ha! Yeah, we are definitely not having a great season in the Rocky Mountain West either. First real bad one in well over a decade. So, when you have reliable seasons like that at least the bad ones are far and few between. Sucks about PNW/PDX. I am still planning on booking tickets for March. Hopefully it will turn around.

The weather around here is looking to be ridiculously warm this weekend. I am thinking about pulling out the climbing gear and getting on the rock at one of the sunny spots around here. If Ullr is going to hold off on the snow, then I might as well climb. He can only ruin one of my sports in Winter. I love climbing so I'll just do that instead and flip the bird.

Down here in Tahoe we've been getting snow but its been so warm by mid-day its slush/spring conditions.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

Rubbing

Just get me good snow in Colorado starting 8 Feb. It's terrible to see an old man crying on the side of the hill.
