    Weather extremes were among others:
    Longest hot spell (world): Marble Bar, W. Australia, 100° F (37.8° C) (or above) for 162 consecutive days, Oct. 30, 1923 to Apr. 7, 1924.
    Largest hailstone (U.S.): Aurora, Neb., 7 in. (17.8 cm) in diameter, 18.75 in. (47.6 cm) in circumference, June 22, 2003.
    Costliest U.S. hailstorm: Denver, Colorado, July 11, 1990. Total damage was $625 million.

    Do we really need to be reminded of the next winter, Charley?

    The above is one of the best designs Hasui ever did! Good choice!

    On my blog I have an original preparatory design for a woodblock print by Hasui. As well as a movie showing Hasui (himself) making preparatory sketches for woodblock prints. The master carver Maeda Kentaro is carving the woodblocks.

    Below I’m including a link to the blog page. Please enjoy!
