Went grocery shopping at about 1pm. Weather was nice and sunny. It started to snow hard when I left the supermarket. I had five plastic bags in one hand and a huge roller back pack full of stuff. Well, it started to blizzard and a white out!
It was tough walking without anything in your hands because of the icy and snowy pavement but try rolling a bag in those conditions! And I could not see the landmark that i so carefully noted as I left the area. So naturally I got lost, had no idea whether i was close or several streets off.
Finally, I asked a truck driver who was unloading and i said i know it is near a post office. So he took me into this building where a post man was delivering mail. The nice postman took my roller bag and hefted it on his shoulders and led me to the dormitory. He was so kind. I could hardly see through my glasses, and he delivered me right to the front door. I was so grateful to him. I was only one street off.
Tonight, I am going to cook black sauce chicken, rice and stir fry veggies, with strawberries for dessert.
Today is also the start of the snow festival. WHile it is still daylight, I am gonna walk over to the closest park, Odori park to check out the sculptures.
