You Say Hurricane; We Say "Typhoon"
This is only the second typhoon I've had to deal with since our move to Japan a year and a half ago. Matt has to leave when one is coming near which means (joy!) I get to move everything indoors and buckle down on my own. The eye is supposed to hit about 30-50 miles from us which means this should be more exciting, wet and windy than the last one. I did get the day off work though...

Click the image below to see a larger version. There are two red dots: one being the eye of the typhoon and the other, our town.


Rather than fill up the tub with water, I filled up the fridge with beer. Instead of canned goods, I opted for Japanese potato chips and ramen (not pictured.) The pups are good too with plenty of rawhide chews and dog food. I did get my lighters, bottled water and candles stockpiled...just in case.

All the food groups are represented. Did your mom marry Mr. Rogers?

Filling the fridge with beer was a good idea. But you could've filled the tub with beer too!
Nothing like the local convenience stores...

The geek I am, I made sure my laptop, cellphone and camera were all charged up! Who needs water and candles?

I don't know what is worse...the seas from the typhoon or being on the land.

Looks like we'll be finding out sooner than later!
