day 1669 – snow boot

snow boots all around after hours of flurries. the flurries of snow fall was continuous throughout the day and got heavy at certain points. i risked it and drove to work with my shadow, but got very anxious as the snow fall got heavier and i see my car covered in six inches of white powder. like many others, i left work early, but not early enough to avoid the congested road. it took over 75 minutes of slipping and sliding before i got home, but thankfully got home safely

woke up this morning to find out that the weather forecast was correct for once. the streets were covered with a layer of snow and all parked cars have an added layer of icing. i’ll be driving out to my nash and my meeting with my mom’s rav 4, but before then, i had to scrape off the icing on the car. the snow is not heavy but it keeps falling through the day. i wonder if what condition it’ll be tomorrow and whether driving my beemer is plausible

since weather forecast said both osaka and kyoto are affected by rain, we decided it’s not worth the trip out to kyoto and will postpone it for next day. that was my que to sleep in and make up for the lack of sleep. we spent our morning in shinsaibashi, a 600 metre covered street mall, and shopped until lunch time. we were fortunate it didn’t start raining until 5pm and that’s when we made our way back to b&b

for the second straight day, i elected to not go out for dinner. this gives me some personal time and a chance to do a circuit. that’s no replacement for gym sessions, but i will have to make do with it until i get back. all that pigging out and no training is not boding well. i’m worried the time away from gym has set me back many steps

i clearly didn’t learn enough from watching anime. menus with only japanese characters are pretty meaningless to me which makes ordering impossible. the only way for me to remember the names is to translate them into chinese; they all sound so absurd i end up making fun of them

i have yet to have a video chat with mo while i am in japan; it’s very difficult based on time difference. we still exchange messages very frequently. i know that he’s taken this time to reconnect with his close friends

day 753 – rainy forecast

hope the weather forecast is not correct but if it is, the end of august could be bringing us some rain. i know we’ve had a drought this summer and i know we need to have water in order to survive, but i am still not thrilled to see the rain come back. not finished with tennis, hiking, water sports or numerous outdoor activities which all requires the sun to cooperate

day 163 – pouring

really wished i was in big white skiing, enjoying the snow and partying, but instead i am stuck in vancouver where it’s pouring nonstop.  it’s depressing knowing the weather forecasts doesn’t get any better throughout the weekend. although i do understand its not recommended i risk blacking out again up on the mountain top

day 47 – don’t look now

yuck, what has the weather forecast become??!! although the official change of season has yet to come, but looks like the inevitable autumn season has arrived without summer’s permission. i am sure i am not the only one that is depressed by the coming of the season of rain onslaught
