Spring has come ?

by Kazu

Considering my increasing weight,my biological clock seems to be telling spring has come.
But accumulated snow is still left in downtown of Iwamizawa. I am concerned that the flood around Ishikari river may damage the agriculture in Sorachi sub-prefectural area  in summer and autumn after the heavy snowfall in this winter. 
On the other hand, very few snow is left in Sapporo City. It is warmer in Sapporo than in Iwamizawa.
Weather alert service will be started in April. I am very sorry for the delay of the system. Weather alert email will be sent from " ikeda.kazuaki@pref.hokkaido.lg.jp " or my private email address that I will get in April.
The service is for the expatriates living in Sorachi sub-prefectural area, Hokkaido but if any comments or requests you have, please do not hesitate to tell me.
This is my favorite photo of this winter in Sapporo. Rising sun is the symbol of reincarnation.
