のっつのっつの日  "Nottu Nottu" is Snow falling sound

岩手では雪が降る音を「のっつのっつ」といいます。
やや重たい雪が音も無く降りつづける感じ。
のっつのっつと雪が降るというと、しっくりきます。

私が好きなのは、雪が降った次の日。
いい青空で一面真っ白で気持ちいい!
雪かきは大変だし、水道が凍ったりするけれど
こういう日があるから、冬が好きなのかもしれません。

In Iwate snow-falling sound is reffered to as "Nottu Nottu"
Heavy snow keeps falling without making any sound and I find that very interesting.
I'm interested in why they named it "nothing" because in Tokyo we don´t call it like this.

気持ちのいい青空!
I love the days after it has been snowing.
Blue skies and white-layered world make me feel good inside.

雪かき用具。ツルハシで固くなった雪を砕きます。

This is "Tsuru-hashi".
Tsuru means "crane", hashi means beak.
It is an ice-crushing tool!

Shoveling the snow is is very hard.
Water supply freezes during this time but I still like winter.

真っ白でどこまでも行ってみたくなる道。

Pure, white road
I want to go anywhere.

のっつのっつどつもった庭をぼけっと眺める。

"Nottu Nottu"
Everything is peaceful and relaxing, it snowed a lot.
I am enjoying the view of the garden while drinking tea slowly
It's such a lovely time for me!
