Clearing Road of Snow in Japan. Let's see. 12 feet no problem in Japan vs. 12 inches equals disaster in New York?

After checking out this frozen highway (be sure and scroll down for the video's), you may want to view the much warmer Hana Highway.   And the amazing SIX DAY Road Repair after quake in Japan...

This area gets up to 53 FEET of snow:





2:11 mark in video is good illustration of how they do this fantastic job of snow removal.  

And a video of a drive down this road.


Or Maybe THIS device for your personal use....also from Japan. The Yukitaro.

So it isn't a sure is gearhead worthy!

Saw this and thought it matched up to these roads.

Summer's almost here ...we can now see the deer moving around in our back yard.

Winters back and soon I will feel like I have been driving this road.   Truly amazing.

My guess is that we will see all this snow about April....this warm stuff is just to lull you into a false sense of security.

back to clearing the mis information on this road.  It is in Japan, not Canada, Not Wyoming,
