Small white ice balls are falling in the town this morning. It rained a lot yesterday, melted snow sadly.
I take another day off not riding, do “Oh soji today. Oh-soji is the annual cleaning of the house done in December in Japan. We clean up the house thoroughly. This is because we welcome the God of the year to our places. It feels great to welcome the New Year in a clean and tidy home.
A massive storm is heading to Hokkaido, probably starts snowing on Friday.
