Rain and Wind



Guess who got off work early today!!!

This morning was sunny but apparently an active low pressure system and front is moving in with strong crazy winds and many companies released their employees early today since the trains and subways could be delayed or halted for a period of time.

So here I am back at home in the middle of the afternoon. Good thing since my brain was starting to hurt a little with all the new information I've been accumulating since yesterday. I think I'll relax and enjoy the sound of rain and wind outside.

Looks like these little birdies are enjoying the shower, too!

  1. I love these photos! Perfect! ^^

    We could also go home early. Now I'm praying that the blossoms will survive the storm. Mother Nature, this is Bad Timing! (>_<)

    1. Once I got home I was hoping the winds would die down so they don't blow all the blossoms away! Glad you were home safe though :D

  5. Very cute - good luck with your storm. I saw some photos of trucks blown over by it on the BBC news site! We've got a major snowstorm today, but we need the moisture as March was completely dry, so we're not complaining.

    To answer your question, the trail with the views tops out around 11,000 feet elevation (3,352m). The valleys below are around 9,000 feet elevation (2,743m).

  7. They didn’t have to go to the birdbath—the birdbath came to them.

    It looks like you really piqued their interest, but I don’t see how they could mistake your camera for a package of birdseed. Maybe they just like you.

    I like what looks like a bamboo fence in the background—surrounding that rarest of things in Tokyo—open space.

  8. The bamboo fence is actually surrounding a bush! :D

  10. There's nothing nicer than to be cosy and warm inside listening to the wind and rain outside, enjoy Kaori..I'm looking forward to it.
