Our warm winter is continuing. This time last year we had so much snow. It was the worst winter for 36 years in our area of Japan. This year, we have had no snow at all. I am glad about this, because I don’t like snow, but it feels strange.

It has also been unseasonably warm. Most days, the temperature is around 8 or 9 degrees. Of course, it gets colder during the nights, but the daytime is not so cold.

Last December, I had my car tyres changed. We use snow tyres in winter. So we are all driving around on snow tyres, but there is no snow! Soon, it will be time to change the tyres back to normal tyres.

We might get some snow later in the month, but it is already starting to feel like spring some days. Of course, I want spring to come soon, but I wonder…what happened to winter?
