Unusual Weather

Storm front affecting Japan.
We've been having the most unusual weather here this spring compared to last year.  It's not only been colder, and wetter, but we have been having a lot of typhoon-like weather patterns.  This is not typical for this time of year since typhoons usually occur in August and September.  In the past week, we've had two storms that have brought hellacious winds and downpours.  The storm today was expected to have extremely high winds of over 65mph.   Many services on base have closed early, after school activities were canceled and people were sent home early from work.  Its better to be safe than sorry.

Here are a couple links about the storms we've been having here: 



What I've been really wanting to blog about are the Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) trees.  I've been putting it off because the trees are taking longer to bloom because of the weather.  Today, I noticed more Sakura blossoming on base.  I'm just hoping the storm doesn't wreak havoc on them too much.
