|The remaining snow is melting away|
The first snow of this winter in Tokyo caused many train delays, but the remaining snow is melting away now. Accordning to a certain TV weather forecast, it was caused by a rare low-pressure system. It's called 爆弾低気圧(Bakudan teikiatsu).
I usually hear this word in every winter when watching a weather forecast. I googled it just now, and found that this word is a literal translation of "bomb cyclone." BTW, 爆弾(bakudan) means bomb, and 低気圧(teikiatsu) means cyclone or low-pressure. I think it's no exaggeration to call it bomb. Actually it was like a bomb(Jan 14 was really a snowy and windy day).
Streets are not that slippery, so easy to walk now, but I miss snow. I miss bomb cyclone. It's great to drink hot Sake after coming home from office, especially on a cold day. I don't know how to describe. Can you imagine???
