... you can gather from the snowblower pictured, but temps really aren't too bad. Right at freeing for today. I guess an area that hosted the Winter Olympics would have to have some snow in February! Food is incredible. We really aren't getting a taste of "regular" Japanese food yet -- everything has been more what would be served for ...
