I usually try to get out at least two posts per month, but it just wasn’t going to happen this particular November.
More roller coaster weather, sunset arriving earlier and earlier each day, persistent colds and then secondary infections, laziness, general disgust at certain election results have all sapped my energy.
But November 24th will go down in history as the first time this area has recorded snow piling up in November.
Snow is not particularly common in the metropolitan areas in and immediately surrounding Tokyo, and often melts on contact with the ground or at least on contact with asphalt roads. Some snow does manage to build up and may remain for several days, but this only happens in the depths of winter. Except for this time.
The last recorded snowfall in this area in November was over 50 years ago, and it apparently did not pile up to any significant depth.
I’m not a big fan of snow. Sure, it’s pretty to look at, but you don’t want to be stuck in it.
I’ll finish up here as I have to go to work.
