Another bitterly cold day…

The low temperature outside the center this morning was -25°C, which set another new low for the season. The temperature at Kamikawa Town was -27.2°C, which is the second lowest temperature ever recorded there in February. In fact, it was the fourth coldest morning ever recorded there, regardless of the month.
Indeed, it was so cold that instead of being “like the inside of a freezer,” it felt “colder than a freezer.”
Nonetheless, the weather is exceptionally clear and sunny, for the winter. The rime-covered trees of Mt. Niseikaushuppe that are shown in the photo provided a gorgeous scene.
