Coldest blast of air so far this winter is coming this week in Japan.

Here is the forecast for Tokyo:

forecast2 by Ian, on Flickr

A little milder where live (Tokyo tends to get more extremes than my area, warm spells are warmer and cold spells colder in the winter)

forecast1 by Ian, on Flickr

What makes these cold events in Japan feel much worse is most houses and public buildings don't have central heating. My office is heated by two kerosene heaters...

Japan is frustratingly old school in some respects. Fax machines are still used for everything in every office here.

This Thursday is showing a low of -17c in Seoul. Oof! That's cold.

Thankful, South Korea, being a cold country, has certain standards that apartments must be built to. Central heating and proper insulation are mandatory (at least for any building built within the last couple of decades). Hell, the apartment we're renting has heated floors. It's awesome!

Nice weekend in Seoul. Clear and sunny for the most part with temps around 5c-6c.

I went around my new neighbourhood to check it out, and get the lay of the land.

-1C with a wind chill of -4C and overcast.

It was 5C down in Burlington, VT. That is good news as the snow is disappearing and it would be much easier to warm up under a southerly wind. Big warmup for next weekend in the forecast.

The warmspot was Race Rocks Lightstation, BC at 12.3C.

Sunday's weather in Vancouver was sunny, cloudy, windy, calm, wet and dry. Sunshine and blue sky in the morning with winds strong enough to start rearranging the furniture on my neighbour's patios. Mostly calm, cloudy and dry in the afternoon but when I was coming back on the bus from the North Shore we encountered a sudden squall with rain slashing at the windows just as we got through Stanley Park by Denman Street. Then a few minutes later at Granville it was dry and calm, like nothing had happened.

The high at Vancouver Harbour was 10 C, the low was 6 C.

I didn't realize there was a subdivision up there on top of the south side hills. Do they have any kind of a view of the city, or is it blocked by trees??

^Excellent view of the city, however it's a fairly old neighbourhood and is somewhat notorious for being lower-income and slightly higher crime rate (it's called Shea Heights). I think thinks have improved there over the years, but while the land value may not be there for those homes, pretty much all of them have a million dollar view.

------

-7, winds gusting to 70 km/hr, wind chill around -20. This aint fun.

-13C right now, -22C windchill. A pretty nice January day actually. Forecast says -1C this afternoon, but no way. -5C at the most.

There is a 10 degree difference between Montreal and Toronto right now. Definitely happy to be on the south side of this weather system. Hopefully Ottawa and Montreal don't get too effected by the freezing rain on the way today.

That's a little strange, isn't it? Typically communities on hills tend to be higher income and more exclusive. Just thinking now and I can't seem to recall any other community from my recollection which is situated on a hill and is actually known for being low income and higher crime.

It's right next to an oil tank farm. That might have something to do with it.

It was a squatter community that grew up just outside the city limits, but very close to the harbour and present day downtown, in order to avoid taxes and regulations in the early 20th century.

I think it was the first big wind storm of the season yesterday, minor damage in the Vancouver area, but lots of power outages in some areas.
