A few cm of new snow has fallen in the last 12 hours. It’s good to see it’s snowing but not raining outside.
I went to Iwaonupuri yesterday for more powder run but I had to end up at half because of poor visibility. I should stop hunting snow for now and take a day off for next snow. Snow is wet and heavy today. If you go riding, better to bring a towel for after riding.
Wind will be stronger for tonight and tomorrow. I hope this storm will bring more snow, not only the wind this time.
