Stormy Monday Nite Photos
Author: Hiroshi

This evening, the Kanto plane was struck by a winter storm.
This is the COFC train heading north as it approaches the JR East Sakuragicho station under the snowy sky.

Stormy photos always seem underappreciated. I do like the look in the evening as well. Any more pictures?

Thank you for visiting, TexasRoket-san:

Upon arriving at the Basha-Michi station, I had the good fortune to board the Hoya bound express. 
The train was running twenty minutes behind schedule already.
A little over eight hundred hours had passed.
Additional passengers were on board when the train traveled through some cloud cover. 
We were meant to pass a local when we arrived at the Kikuna station. 
However, such was not the case tonite.
The local was allowed by the dispatcher to continue its journey. 
I had no idea that this was just the start of the tale.

These are the later photos I took. 
By now, it was getting a bit worse.

Thank you for stopping by.

The Express was still running twenty minutes late.
At the Tamaga station, I could change from the Express to the local.

Here is the local (left) I took while the southbound local (right) was at the station.

Came out from the station, we had to wait till the south bound local passed.
Soon, another northbound showed up.

It was becoming worse and worse by nineteen hundred hours.
The disruption in the train schedule caused the crossing to be backed up in both directions.

The southbound local is the next to go; it halted short at the station before continuing on its way to Ebina.

As the weather deteriorates, more trains are piling up in a roll. I used a pedestrian bridge to avoid waiting too long before crossing the trucks.

Snow turned into rain before midnight, and most of the snow had melted by dawn.
Still, you can see some snow left.

By afternoon, the sun was shining; the storm was gone with the wind, which is another story.
