(Now) Super Typhoon Krosa

October 4th, 7:10am

Another one is one its way but this one is not tracking towards us much, we'll get some weather from it but unless it turns, we won't get a full hit. Sucks because they are cancelling all the weekend activities and this is a long weekend....grrr. Oh well, I guess we have two more months of typhoon season left so...

Update: October 5th, 11:09pm

Well, it still isn't coming to us but it has been upgraded to a Super Typhoon (equivalent to Cat 5 hurricane in the States) so we are getting some good wind and rain from it. We had a bbq at the beach with some friends today and we'll all probably have some wind burn on our skin because it was blowing pretty good.



Update: 8 October 5:37pm

Not an issue anymore. We still had our bbq at the beach and it is too bad that they cancelled all the activities this weekend because other than a bit of wind and some sporadic showers it was okay outside. Oh well, live and learn, I guess.

By the way - can we get a translation on the typhoon names if you can find them. I think it would be interesting!

Yeah, it has been a bit gusty here but nothing like Taiwan is experiencing right now, I am sure...
