Snow Day

On  Monday it snowed!  It was beautiful to look out the window of a high rise building and see the snow swirling so far above AND below us.  I heard we got between 8 and 12 cm (not that I measured myself).

I didn't take any pictures while it was snowing, but I did go to the neighborhood shrine the next day to take some pictures before all the snow melted off.

I love that there is so much green foliage here even in the winter!

Later in the week I discovered a couple of really cute snowmen near our house.

That's a plastic spoon for a nose!

His eyes are pine cones.
Rumor has it John will soon be making an appearance soon with a blog about computer buying/building in Japan.

  1. Beautiful photos! If you like the grey/green winter, you should try the Pacific Northwest when you come back. You might find you miss the sun though...
