I never really grew up with any worthwhile amount of snow. In Central Texas we would, every 8 to 10 years, get 1 or 2 centimeters of snow. Of course, our area not being used to it, we would pretty much shut down the city for that amount. Even a week or two ago in the area, some schools were canceled due to cold. Yes… there was no snow or ice, just cold weather.
So when the weather forecast here predicted a day of snow on Saturday, Feb. 8, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Of course, it ended up being a record amount of snow. Close to 9 inches in a day. The most snow the greater Tokyo area has received in 13+ years. I was pretty excited to be here for it. ^_^
Of course, I had to work that day. Many students canceled, but not all. I have no idea why some insisted (yes, one really did insist) on going to school.
There were many snowmen made around the area, and many kids throwing snowballs at each other. It was a wonderful site to see, but I had no one to play in the snow with. I was just a little sad.
Apologies for the blurriness of the photos. My camera isn’t the best at low-light photography, and I had no tripod.
