TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan was bracing for more snow on Friday after some of the heaviest snowfall on record that has left 57 people dead and paralysed transport.

Almost 4 metres (13 ft) of snow has piled up in the worst-hit areas of Niigata near the Japan Sea coast, though the snowiest season of the year is yet to come.

So far they have had 13ft of snow and this is even't there snow season. There heaviest snowfall doesn't usually come til January or February. This is just one of the many things that have happened lately that pertains to the weather. Anybody else have an opinion on this?

I was stationed in Misawa Japan.
We used to get wicked snow storms up there.
I remember one day it took me and my supervisor half the day to dig out the doorway to get into our office there had been nearly 5 feet of snow over night.
Nagiita gets snow every year but not nearly as much as they are seeing this year.
