Kitakami drowning in the snow

Our street this morning, after 36 hours of uninterrupted snowfall. There are about 50 cm of snow now. And still more to come, according to the weather forecast. In March!

Holy Cow! That's a lot of snow.

I didn't know that it snow so heavily this time of year there.

Neither did I! It is indeed very unusual; in normal years, there are lots of snow in January and February, but not now!

Thank you for replying. Oh…so this much snow is rare for March.

Does it get unreasonably cold there?

And is that a forest in the background? Do I see tremendously tall trees?

Thank you for the images. I appreciate them.

In Denver Colorado, March & April get the most snow of any months. In 2003, we received 8 feet in 30 hours in the foothills west of town. In Delta, located in western Colorado, we don't get much snow at all. Cool pics!
