Snow hits Togakushi, Nagano ken

Here are some shots from Togakushi on a visit there January 27-28.  After over a week of daily snow, the pack was well over a meter.   Quiet and beautiful.  A few days later however, the build-up caused power outages, a major bridge in the prefecture to collapse and an avalanche to take out a mountain-side onsen, sadly killing three (Bloomberg report).
