Massive Snowstorm In Japan

Recommended Posts

Shows how quickly things can go pear-shaped if the shops run out.

Meat and vegetables disappeared from supermarket and convenience store shelves in Yamanashi Prefecture. Seven & i Holdings Co. decided to fly four helicopters to resupply its Seven-Eleven convenience stores and Ito-Yokado supermarkets in Yamanashi and other prefectures on Feb. 18. Company officials said this is the first airlift operation since the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami of March 2011.

Proper weather

I've seen a documentary about somewhere in Japan where every winter (or often, or sometimes) the snow is 3 or 4 meters deep, above the house tops, and they have to just dig alleyways through it a meter or two wide. Must be on youtube, but I can't search with this computer.
