Unfortunately, we arrived home much later than we anticipated because of a snow storm in Hokkaido Thursday. We caught the express train at the airport, but were stopped for a couple of hours in Sapporo before that train was put out of service. With only minutes to spare we switched to a local train that was still running in the direction of our town. That train was also stopped by the snow and we switched to another local, finally getting to our town after midnight. We were tired and the snow was falling hard at that point so we decided to take a taxi from the train station to our apartment. The driver was hard of hearing and the roads treacherous, but we finally made it home to our 41 degree F apartment. We were glad we didn’t spend the night in Sapporo Thursday night because we wouldn’t have made it back yesterday. This is what it looked like out our windows yesterday morning.

We were very busy the whole time we were gone and I didn’t get much stitching done. The little bit that I did get done on this counted thread project was done at the airport and while in the air.I’m sorry for the delay on the vacation report. Please stay tuned.
