"And the girls in their summer clothes..."

So, after receiving some information about my training schedule in Nagoya during my first week in Japan, and rearranging my clothes after giving my mom my dresser (which inevitably resurfaced a question that has been weighing heavily on my mind since I got this job: "How in the world am I going to pack my life for a year into two 50 lb. suitcases?")...
I checked the weather in Nagoya.
I'm sorry - what? Does that say mostly 70 degrees all week? Could it be that this winter-worn, snowpant-owning, four-wheel-black-ice-driving, doesn't-blink-an-eye-when-two-feet-of-snow-fall-in-one-night Michigander will be enjoying 70 degree weather in November?
*shhhhh - if we say it out loud, we just might jinx it*

You're lucky you get to bring two heavy suitcases from the States, I was only allowed one 20 kilo suitcase from Europe (bringing one more would cost me more than a returnflight to Japan!), which is about 40 lbs.
Yeah, it stays warm here for a long time, but make sure to pack some really warm clothes because when winter hits you'll freeze! Your apartment will most likely be impossible to heat up, so be prepared!
