Just how high the snow truly gets

I'm not sure if anyone reads my blog here with enough enthusiasm to recall one of my  posts before the snow started here. My husband and I thought it was amusing/ridiculous that there were sticks in the ground over 6 foot high, that were apparently there to ensure the snow plows would know where they were going. If you want to know what I'm talking about, my original blog (with a picture as a comparison!) about it was over here.

Well, that stick in the ground has well and truly had it. We had another massive snow a few days ago - after most people in our neighborhood told us that we wouldn't get another big snow - and as you can see, it's under a lot of pressure!

We have some context now for what winter is going to be like next year, and when they start putting those "marker sticks" out, I won't laugh and assume they're just being dramatic.

After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!

    omg! the snow here has completely melted and is long gone. it is even, dare I say, starting to feel like spring! I do not envy you, but I hope you are staying warm.

    @edthethe we keep telling ourselves that soon it's going to be spring...over half way through February means it has to stop sometime soon (at least we hope!)
