One of the reasons why I moved to Japan was to avoid some of the nasty winter weather back in Ottawa. So far it has totally paid off. In Ottawa today it’s snowing and it’s -8 degrees. I got this picture from the web-cam at the Lord Elgin hotel showing the state of Confederation park.
Aside from the christmas lights, it looks quite dreadful. In Sendai however it’s sunny and the temperature is 18 degrees. Here a photo of the graden I took today.
Some of the trees have lost their leaves, but every thing is still looking good. Hell, we even have lots of flowers that are still blooming.
Maybe someone didn’t tell them it was December 10th. We’re supposed to be in the cold part of Japan, but so far it’s only snowed once at night and it all melted by the time I woke up. Very nice! Oh and knock on wood, so I don’t jinx it.
