I said in my last post that it felt like winter's over. It's back - with a vengeance! There are still piles of snow on the streets from the steady fall of snow we had on Sunday, that lasted all day long. Here's a panorama I took from my balcony on Sunday. It was snowing so hard that the towers of West Shinjuku were invisible. The photo makes it all look pretty gloomy, and doesn't give any impression of the sparkle and gleam.
