With the last days of 2004 upon us, it appears the weather has taken a turn from the relative warmth of November and December to plummet sub-zero overnight. What started as a light flurry this morning has progressed to a full-out blizzard, and it’s still coming down like crazy as I write this. In unrelated news, I’m off to Kyoto for Oshogatsu from the 31st to the 3rd. This time, I swear I’ll post pictures! Hope everyone had a happy Christmas — see you in 2005!
