Snow, Finally!

I guess you remember me fretting about missing snowfall while I was in the United States.

Well, I finally experienced what I so wanted for some time, so let me just wallow in it for a while and then let it rest.

It started early morning of Sunday. We were then coming out from an overnight “cruise” and excitement was evident from those we were with. It seemed that even the locals were not really accustomed to having snow in Tokyo. I still saw them rushing to the sidestreets to catch the falling flakes.

Problem was we had to go home. There the struggle began, because meeting the extreme cold became such a challenge. That I was a little younger than my companions made no difference. Now I know, icy cold is not my favorite weather. (grin)

We stayed indoors the whole day. It was useless trying to fulfill appointments when what you’ll extend is a freezing shaking hand.

aha! so your destination was Tokyo! :D
I envy the people from Tokyo... there's not much snow in Osaka. It usually lasts for a few minutes and I missed all of those snowfalls!

except for the last pictures, the other two look so, well, depressing. i never liked winter - the white snow, the cold and the steamy cold breath you get when you exhale. i'm just too much of an island person to really like winter or snow.
