[Saturday 21st January]
On my way home the previous evening a few snowflakes had been falling. Between then and when I opened the curtains the next morning it must have snowed quite a lot, as there was a thick covering of it everywhere I looked.
Poor old Chie had to go into work today. I on the other hand didn't, which was just as well given my late return the previous evening. I didn't surface until after 11, and then spent most of the daytime just lolling around the house basically.
Marvellous!! I remember that when I was living there a massive snow storm completely paralyzed Tokyo for 3 days! :)

shouldn't you bring those plants indoors John, They might get frost bitten and DIE out there!!!

The olive tree should be OK, John - here in Greece they seem to survive far harsher winters than I remember from the UK - or is that what makes the olives bitter??? hehe

Depends on the variety, Bryan. + John's tree is still very young. I'm sceptical. Snow may be Ok, not frost. You should cover it vith straw, John...................... and hug it every night before bedtime.
