Sakura Forecast 2008

Japan's Meterological Agency just released it's predictions for the upcoming Hanami season!

According to their website:

JMA's prediction of cherry blossom blooming dates is conducted by applying the relationships between temperatures and blooming dates in previous years to the temperatures observed since last fall and those predicted in weekly, monthly and three-monthly forecasts.

After the crazy Cleveland winter I've been 'enjoying', I'm really looking forward to some good old hanami! Can I get an amen?

Ah, the joys of winter in Cleveland.

Ah, the joys of being the lucky JET who gets to visit the Beautiful Mountain School in spring.
