Leaving the snow

Streets lose one or two lanes of traffic to snow in the winter.
On Thursday I had to go to Tokyo for a meeting, so I left our piles of snow behind. It had even snowed so much so the trains to the airport were not on time. Trains not being on time is very rare in Japan, and is normally only caused by natural disasters like big earthquakes, hurricanes, or tsunamis. Which, admittedly, we have quite a lot of. But still.

Extreme snowfall is also a form of natural disaster, and they said on the news that some city nearby had received over one meter of snow over night.

On my quite late train, which took 65 minutes instead of the normal 38 to reach the airport, I spent time watching fighter jets take off.
