今年は雪がほとんど降らず、例年に比べてずっと過ごしやすい冬だった。
大雪が降った後の除雪作業の素早さにはいつも圧倒されていたけれど、側道に雪が積もったまま春を迎えることが多いニューヨークが、東京より先に桜の便りを伝えてしまうのは何とも不思議な感じ。
温暖化の進む地球、いったい何が起こっているのであろうか。

今週は一気に気温があがり、セントラルパークにも春がやってきた。
満開の桜並木をくぐり抜けながら、また日本を想う今日この頃。

There not had much snow in this year, we had mild winter much more
pleasant than usual.
New York is often greet the spring while snow piled up on the road side, and I had been overwhelmed the rapidity of removing snow after heavy snow.
But this year, I feel indescribably strange that I would convey the news of
flowering cherry before Tokyo.
What will advance exactly what is going on with global warming?

This week, spring has come to Central Park in Manhattan.
I always think of Japan while I go through the row of cherry blossom trees
in full bloom.
