People in the snowy country

[Dec.2012] In the morning of the day we left Niigata, the outside view was totally white.

The rain yesterday turned into snow.

From now on, they would have snow almost every day.

The long snowy season has started.

According to my friend, when the forecast for the next door area is ordinary snow, the forecast in Niigata  would  be always heavy snow pouring down in slanting sheets.

“That is why the people in Niigata are patient’ told me another friend.

And according to her, that is why the divorce rate in Niigata is low.
