Snowing in Shinkoiwa Doug Reports Posted on March 7, 2011 by dougMarch 7, 2011 Facebook Twitter Reddit Linkedin EmailShare this... A surprise March snow here in Shinkoiwa. doug
Doug, I am not surprised at the difference in size of the Shinkoia flakes and the Ogikubo snowflakes. The ones here are quite large and floating down more slowly. Already the roof tops are covered. There are 3 to 4 centimeters built up on the veranda railings. The snow on the antennae is blocking TV reception. I have the broom at the sliding door ready to perform a quick sweeping operation to improve reception. I haven’t compared an annual Tokyo weather chart with one from Chiba. The Japan warm current from the south that bathes Chiba’s coastline seems to make a considerable difference in annual temperatures, rainfall, and snowfall. How are you doing these days? Dave
Well, suddenly the snowfall has returned to rainfall. Now, it’s decision time. Do I step out into this kind of weather or eat my own cooking, ugh.
Absolutely do not go out in this weather, Dave!doug
