The snow began to fall last night around 9pm. It continued to about 1 in the morning. It was the first snow to fall and stick around in the Tokyo area. I missed the snow last year when I was in Miami, so I was excited to see some fall.
Watching the clumps of snow fall seems like magic to me. They tumble out of the darkened skies and drift until they find a cozy spot to settle. It calms, and excited me.
I woke up in the middle of the night and peeked out the window to see if the snow was still there. There was some, but I was beginning to melt. That was a bit disappointing, but I went for a stroll around the neighborhood just to see what there is to be seen.
The streets might not have had much snow, but lots of the snow melted and iced over during the night. I could see more clearly that the night before, but it still seems like another world.
