Cold Yamagata

I went to Yamagata City on Sunday to take part in the PTA meeting and was able to meet the parents of some of our students. I saw a lot of snow on the way there especially around the Yonezawa area, but to my pleasant surprise there was no snow in Yamagata City itself. I stayed overnight and visited some high schools on Monday. For the very first time, I also went to a department store there (Sunday night with the mother of one of my students!!) and was amazed at the large amount of boots they sell for the snowy weather of the area. I bought a pair....
