Give me Sunshine!

I took this picture just yesterday. It snows heavily in northern part of Japan for a while. Japanese people were astonished at this weird weather of this month.

As you can see from the picture, it snowed about 20 cm in a day in my hometown. Moreover, in Tokyo or other east part of Japan had cherry blossoms with snow. People in those areas tried to enjoy Hanami (which is one of the big Japanese events to enjoy seeing cherry blossoms and drinking under the trees) on that day surly had cold Hanami.

Snow has stopped, but it seems to start again on 5th and 6th. By the way, there is a record that it snowed in middle of May in my hometown, Akita. I hope this record won’t be renewed this year…

こちらでも3月に雪降りましたからね~。今は毎日のように嵐が来てます。泣。トルネードの発生率今年は高そうで、今からびくびくしてます、、、。

トルネード!やはり家が吹き飛ばされそうなくらい大きいものがよく発生するんのかな?

テレビか何かで、トルネードが起こりやすい所に住んでいる家庭には、身を守るための地下があると聞いたことがありますが、skipnkaiさんのうちにもあります?

トルネードも直撃されると家ごと吹き飛ばされますね~。うちには無いんですが(作る予定!)庭に地下室みたいなシェルターを作ってる人や家の中に地下室を作る人、主人の実家には円錐型したシェルターがあります。それでも被害があるので、まず逃げる事が先決かな~と思ってます。家にはトルネード保険が掛かってるので、安心?ですよ~。

Japan has amazing weather. But I don't understand why the cherry trees already blossom. Maybe it's because of the temperature.
Here it's already about 14 celcius degrees, but the cherry are not ready to blossom. But it was below zero 2 weeks ago, therefore, the trees are still "sleeping"

トルネード保険って初めて聞きました!その地ならではですね~。家の地域にも、豪雪保険とかあったらなぁ 笑。(補助金でもいいけど…)。
