Blue skies after the typhoon

Beautiful blue skies this morning after the typhoon. You can even see Mount Fuji in the distance behind the Sky Tree and all the cables.

Part of a neighbor’s very old roof flew around the neighborhood and landed on my third-floor veranda. It was very light, so fortunately did not cause any damage. I actually passed it to him from my veranda while he was walking along walls behind the house.

Neighbors cleared out their bicycles and plants this morning from my first floor. And I walked around picking up little pieces of that roof that were all over the place. Everything here seems back to normal at the moment.

This cute snail got inside my first floor during the typhoon. This morning I put him out on a neighbor’s plant. He seemed happy.

A few early bloomers in my neighborhood

Most cherry blossoms are not predicted to bloom until March 22nd though. The earliest on record. Every year they bloom earlier and earlier. When I first came to Japan they didn’t bloom until the first week of April.
