    Snow and More Snow in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     American elaandzoe and her daughter, Zoe, captured these images of heavy snowfall in the city of Sapporo, Japan. Eight people have died due to the poor weather in the country. "With the amount of snow on sidewalks [and] parking lots there are many falls and resulting injuries," she said. "In fact, friends of ours have broken legs. Serious winter boots and winter soles are a must."

    Starting with rain on Friday night, the weather in Sapporo, turned into gusty winds and tons of snow on Saturday and Sunday. The roads harbored black ice under layers of snow. Snow plows and gigantic snow blowers filled neighborhoods both nights. Even the heated roadways, so common here on hilly roads in Miyanomori, neighborhood of Sapporo could not keep up with the snow and freezing weather.
