A T what? 8? huh?

When I woke up this morning and looked out the window it looked kinda windy but I didn’t really think it was a typhoon 8 till I got a message from someone I was meant to meet at 9am, saying that I guess our meeting was off! The Hong kong government releases a notice when there is a typhoon, the closer the typhoon to Hong Kong the greater the number attached to the typhoon.

So a typhoon 8 means you don’t leave the house, no one goes to work with wind speeds of 100kms per hour and there are no modes of transport that run in this kind of weather. They even warn you to stay away from the shoreline and water sports.. as well as not to touch any electrical cables that may have fallen onto the street… ha! well duh!

So The Jackstar and I spent the day indoors, moving from room to room unpacking draws and cupboards and finding things to keep the little guy amused, it’s been fun, but I do hope that Nesat (the name of the typhoon) moves on and that tomorrow life returns to normal.
