Well, today was the first day around here in almost a week where it didn’t seem to be raining which was quite nice. Apparently it’s been a pretty wet year all round, which a record number of typhoons, and unfortunately a record number of deaths. There’s a World Weather summary here, and the Japanese Meteorological Agency. Global warming? Natural cycles? Diffcult to know, but I’m wondering whether it will result in more snow this winter after last year’s fairly short season.
