Wacky Weather and the Coming Winter

Northern Japan has been a mess these days, at least as far as the weather is concerned, . I’m sure most of you have heard about the tornado that touched down on an Island off of Hokkaido, killing eight people. I want to clarify that no tiltyhouse staff was anywhere near the disaster,so there is no need to be worried about us. I just want to emphasize that Japan does not get many tornadoes. I think they get a major one every forty years, so for them this was pretty big news.

 That very next day a massive storm pushed itself down Japan and caused all of the morning trains on the Hanwa line to be cancelled. This left me stranded in Ashiro all morning, unable to get to my Junior High School in Tayama. Lucky for me, classes were all cancelled. That very same storm also dumped a pile of snow on any mountain over 900 meters. Iwate mountain went from brown to snow white in a little over six hours. I am definately in a part of Japan that sees more crazy weather.

 That leads me to the coming winter. In what had been long overdue, I have to decided to return to North America for a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to visiting with friends and family during this time. I also hope to get out and push tiltyhouse a little while I am away as well. If you are an avid lisenter of Dai-Cast and are interested sharnig any ideas about the show with me while I am away,?please feel free to get in contact with me at the at jason@tiltyhouse.com. While I am in North America, I will be in Burlington Vermont from December 23rd to December 30th, and Edmonton Alberta from December 31st to January 7th. Also, if you are just someone that hasn’t seen me in a while and want to get in contact with me again, please do so.
