  1. 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?

  2. 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!
