We Tokyoites always go gaga whenever snow falls in the metropolitan area. There's a damn good reason for that. We suffer the cold winter but usually never have the pleasure to actually see snowfall.
Till now, I had only seen two occasions of worth-to-brag about snowfall over here on Tokyo. I always think of it as some form of reward for suffering the biting cold winds throughout this winter. Seeing all the white fluffy stuff laying around makes me forget the cold and pick it up to throw to someone. And I most certainly did that (to my housemate).
Hey, how often could you get plastered by snowball in Tokyo?
