Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!


Can you believe it? It's the middle of April and it snowed again!

I was actually half asleep when I took these photos in the morning but you can clearly see the snow on the rooftops. Of course it all melted by afternoon but still. I've never heard of snow in April. I worry about our world sometimes.

Yes it's unbelievable spring weather.
According to the weather forecast, unstable weather seems to continue for a while.
Be careful not to catch cold.

Amazing! Neat shot of the snow in the roof tiles in the second image.

«Louis» looks forward to you joining the Sunday Bridge meme.

I think I mentioned experiencing snow in April in Tokyo during the blooming of cherry blossoms in 1988, 22 years ago. Sometimes freaky weather happens.

The snow really made for a nice rooftop view. Love it. There sure are a lot of power and phone lines passing through though...

You posted blooming flowers... and now this! Nice pictures, bad weather: take care!

You and me both. Weather all over the world has been crazy and scary.

But I have to say, snow on the rooftops is really pretty and your photos caught the beauty wonderfully!

Thank you for visiting and leaving comments while my husband and I were away, Kaori. Thank you for the greeting too! I really, really appreciate it. Big hug from Manila! :)

Oh my god! This is so not cool! Is it normal to snow in April?

Keko desu ne! Better you than us! I don't want any more snow here in Minnesota. But it's April - I keep looking over my shoulder to see if a snowstorm is sneaking up on us!

The snow makes the houses really pretty! But I hope the weather makes up its mind soon :)

The snow makes for beautiful pictures. Snow in April is common where I live. Even in May it's not unusual, and I've seen it at my house in June a couple of times.

wow,winter has decided to stay longer !!

Kaori said...

Hi all! Thank you for the comments! It is once again warm today :)

Snow in april isn't common at all. In the past few years I think it snowed only about once a year. But as Tall Gary mentioned, it does snow in April on rare occasions. According to the news, this snowfall tied with the one in 1969, which was recorded as the latest snowfall in Saitama!

If Sushi is right, we still may have unstable weather for a while. We'll see how the weather turns this week :)

What a wonderful photography !
Over here in Athens it hasn't been raining for nearly two months and temperature did reach nearly 30C during the weekend.
Please have a nice start into the new week.
