We had a little snow

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.

Outside my apartment. 7:10 p.m.

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. ^_^

At 7:11 p.m.

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.

7:12 p.m.

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.
