More Snow in Kyoto

By now it's all melted, but our area of Kyoto got its first real snow accumulation of the season this past weekend. We got a few flakes earlier in the month, but today we got about an inch or two (while it looks like the northern part of the city got quite a bit more).

One hour (and four-year-old twins) later

 

Anthony certainly enjoyed the snow

Now

Last April

 


The snowman built by the four-year-old twins living below us, and their mom. (Snowmen in Japan use only two snowballs, as opposed to three in America.)

Resilient flowers peeking out from under the snow.

As I said, it's all gone now.... except the snowman, who still stands, although a bit worse for wear. It's supposed to snow a bit tonight and tomorrow. We'll see.... (update: here and here)
