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.
The weather is beautiful today now that the typhoon has passed. The skies are a clear, brilliant blue. But the winds are very strong, and at times I could barely pedal on my bicycle.
This 10 second video shows what it looks like along the Nakagawa. The waters are churned up, so the water is muddied, and the waves make it look almost like the seashore.
The water, at least at the time I went out, almost reached the lower sidewalk along the river, but didn’t overflow. It probably overflowed in the middle of the storm.
Below the video are a couple of still photos. The leaves are still just starting to turn.
It’s snowing. And it’s cold. This is the view from my bedroom window just before. The snow is still light, but seems to be getting heavier.
I just glanced outside in the middle of the night. It’s snowing!
