If this was Canada, Russia, Norway or Finland it would be just a normal Tuesday morning. Seeing how Japan copes with snow it's no wonder Fukushima is still a smoking hole poisoning us all!

  


Will, I find that statement about Japan handling snow to be incredibly ignorant. Why don't you try a google image search of "Japan snow" or "Niigata snow" and see what you get. In reality, Japan gets some of the heaviest snowfall on earth... and they have the infrastructure to handle it very well (in my experience better than European and American nations).

It never stops amazing me how other cultures cope with weather that is deemed "extreme" If this was Canada, Russia, Norway or Finland it would be just a normal Tuesday morning. Seeing how Japan copes with snow it's no wonder Fukushima is still a smoking hole poisoning us all!
