The Impending Typhoon Sinlaku

Well, it looks like we may shortly be getting our first taste of natural disaster-order weather.

Typhoon Sinlaku, which lingered over and did much damage to Taiwan is now about to hit mainland Japan. We have no idea what to expect - if its just going to be a wet couple of days or much more. We are hoping it passes quickly through.

The weather here has been absolutely beautiful the past month, even starting to cool and feel like Fall. But today had that eerie pre-storm feeling, and they made announcements in our building to clear the balconies.

The timing couldn't be worse, as Mike's parents and sister are presently on their flights over the visit us, and are supposed to arrive tomorrow.

I hope the storm is just some heavy rain. I am supposed to fly out tomorrow to meet Matt, who is already in Kobe for a meeting. Since you have family in town I hope we can catch up when I come in January.

Enjoy the visit from your family and stay safe!
