It has been four years and fifty-four days in a row since I stopped smoking.
It's sunny but actually it's cold and windy.
It was easy with a tail wind for me to come to my workplace.
On the other hand, I'm afraid of a headwind on my way back.
Anyway, I have to survive the wintry cold which weather reports say will
continue for at least one week.

Four years and fifty-three days in a row have passed since I gave up smoking.
It's been raining in Nagoya since early this morning and it's a cold rain with
the prediceted highest temperature of only 6 degrees.
I've noticed my left heel gets wet while walking with my rain shoes on.
There is something wrong with the left one, so I put some packing tape on it.
I hope the shoes will work well by that.

I was able to keep no-smoking for four years and fifty-two days in a row.
It was very cold this morning in Nagoya with the lowest temprerature of about
minus one degree.
Weather forecasters say it will be snowy or rainy in Nagoya tomorrow and
if so, we will see snow for the third time this winter, which means, in my
experience, it might be the last snowy day in Nagoya....I really hope so.

It has been four years and fifty-one days in a row since I quit smoking.
Actually, it's very cold today and according to weather forecasts, the
next week may be the coldest week in Nagoya in this year's winter period
with several days' lowest temperatures of minus one or two degrees.
The gubernatorial election of Aichi Prefecture will be held next Sunday.
I've already gone to an early voting today.

Four years and fifty days in a row have passed since I stopped smoking.
The actual temperature is about 12 degrees now, down three degrees from
the predition, but I really hope it will rise by three degrees by two p.m.
just like yesterday's forecasts by weahter officials.
Anyway, actually, it's mild today.
Well, I have to say, weather officials also said yesterday it will get
much colder as early as this evening, and tomorrow will be one of this
winter's coldest days.....I'll really have to be careful and brace myself up.

I was able to keep no-smoking for four years and forty-nine days in a row.
It's not so cold again but it's quite cloudy just like it's going to start
raining pretty soon.
Weather forecasts say tomorrow's highest temperature in Nagoya will be
15 degrees, abnormally warm for this time of year.
Maybe it would be better that I don't believe that, because if the forecasts
don't come true....maybe my heart will get broken just like last year's
similar case.
