The weather was strange when I was coming home from work today. Ominous clouds were moving in over the mountains, but the sun was still streaming through in places. I stopped to look out across the river at the giant torii gate on the other side.
It doesn’t look so bad, really. But when I turned up the road towards home, it looked a little different.
You can’t even see the top of the mountain.
I saw this guy outside of today’s school:
We had our second snow of the season today. Becky’s commute is quite long, and the snow was quite intense, so she didn’t go to work today. My commute is usually about 5-7minutes to my Wednesday school…it took me about 15-20minutes today! Craziness! Anyway, here are my snow photos for today:
Wow did it snow last night. And today. And the temperatures haven’t risen about freezing all day. Actually, it’s officially been below freezing since about 3 p.m. Since there’s a ton of snow and a ton of ice out there, driving was definitely not safe, so I didn’t go to work today. I did get out from under my kotatsu and went for a walk for about an hour this morning. It was cold. My toes were frozen blocks of ice when I got home.
As much as I hate the cold, I have to admit undisturbed snow is really beautiful.
The snow continued in Kamiyama today…
Today, we surprisingly received the first snow of the season:
I pass this part of Kamiyama quite often. Today it was foggy and a little rainy and just looked really nice, so I had to stop and take a picture:
Here’s the post-super typhoon river near today’s school:
I should have taken it in the morning…it had already gone down a bit by the time I took the photo. We got tons of rain for almost 24hrs, but luckily we didn’t have any major problems from the storm.
Bonus photo…tonight is quesadilla night!
Saw a double rainbow at Tokushima Station today:
Is that good luck or something?
It came. It went. We got lucky. We got some rain, some wind, but it had pretty much cleared out by this afternoon. The river isn’t even that high.
