    Typhoon Coming..........

    The first pic is a view from my rooftop to downtown, at or about twilight, the second pic is tonight, just a little while ago............

    The clouds are so low, I felt I could just about reach up and touch them, and it is totally quite, next to no traffic about, it's not raining, and almost no wind, but we have a fairly big typhoon on it's way............

    .......Tokyo is about where that red X is, not a direct hit, but darn close!

    You can see the rain coming!!

    Batten down them hatches!

    I'll most likely retreat to the Dungeon, got to make sure it does not leak.........

    Cheers!

    Take care, Stu...

    My Jr Boss is leaving today for Tokyo.... Bit concerned about him, and hope the flight is OK. The flight might go around to Osaka or Nagoya? Scheduled landing at Narita now is 2:00pm 7/15.

    Thanks for the update, and be sure to check to see all your tools work. Sure would hate for them to stop in the middle of the typhoon...

    The Dungeon seems like a safe place to be. Perhaps NOW is the time to get the entire family involved in woodworking...

    Stay safe..

    If it's not one thing it's another! Start the bilge pumps!

    Take care, I'm sure you're stocked up on emergency supplies.

    It has stalled slightly and wandered out to sea a bit as well, so we are getting rained on a LOT but not much wind at all. It is now about 10:30 AM here, and they expect it to be worse around 2 PM.

    Greg, you Jr Boss is flying right into the teeth of the storm, I'd now want to be on that flight............



    Don't see much way of flying around that one, maybe over it?

    Cheers!

    Hi Stu, Hope all goes well with you. "Taifun" I thing Greg has named it .
    Maybe more like "Nofun". Got to get our laughs in now...
    Those corregated tin covers for your wood could become flying serated guillotines if left to the high winds. Exercise caution maybe the easiest or the hardest "work out" directive I can give you now. Best to you. Shaz

    Stu,

    Take care and do not be too careful with these storms, they can change their minds and come at you at anytime. Keep us updated on your "condition".
