Tokyo snow mayhem

DSC05261

EN: I am not sure how well is this covered in Western media, but Tokyo is temporarily doomed because of snowstorm. This is highly unusual for this place, since most of the times snow falls and disappears in few hours, but this time it is much worse. Public transport collapsed, traffic on the roads as well, it is rare to see these things over here, so I decided to get out for a while with my camera. I fell down on my arse twice (which still hurts), but some of the photos are probably worth it. Working from home tomorrow, I guess.

SK: Nie som si istý, či západné a európske médiá venujú pozornosť tomu, čo sa práve deje v Tokiu, prebieha tu snehová kalamita prvého stupňa, ktorá je na lokálne pomery značne nevídaná. Sneh tu totiž napadne asi tak dvakrát za rok, pričom zmizne do niekoľkých hodín, tento krát je to ale úplne inak. Doprava skolabovala na všetkých úrovniach, ľudia padajú na zadky (vrátane mňa, dvakrát), nič poriadne nefunguje. Za fotky to ale stálo, toto sa tu len tak často nevidí.
