Happy Valentine's Day

Hi, everyone. I'm sorry I wasn't able to write for a LONG time. I hope you all had a good Valentine's Day. Here in Chiba we've had incredibly cold and snowy days. For the first time in my life I had to shovel lots of snow near my parking space for about two hours on February 10. My whole body ached the following day. To my big shock it snowed again on February 11! I was away for three days and when I flew back into Narita Airport on Friday I had a nice surprise: lots of snow again. When I left the airport it wasn't snowing yet, but half way everything turned white. The driver asked me what he should do and of course my only answer was "Please take me home!" I thought we were not going to be able to drive for a while--I don't have special tires--but there was a storm during the night and when we got up Saturday morning most of the snow had been washed away. According to the news, it hadn't snowed this much for many many years. I drove into Tokyo on Sunday and the Chuo Highway was still closed off after Takaido. It seems like it's going to snow again tomorrow....
