Today is quite cold and the first official snowfall of the year in Chiba. Anyone who has met me knows that I love the snow and cold weather more than anything, so I’m quite happy today! But, did you know that back in my home state of North Dakota it has been even colder than here this past week. The temperatures have ranged from highs of about only -10°C in the afternoons to lows of -30°C at night. I would much rather be here in Chiba right now. Enjoy your weekend and the first snow of the year!
