Morning! -5-

After a typhoon night

Typhoon Melor passed by our prefecture last night. It's on the main island of Japan now and moving up northward. I hope it doesn't cause serious damage there...

I expected a sunny day today with clear blue sky, like it usually is after a big typhoon in autumn, but oh-no. It's getting really cloudy now and might rain soon ...

I am happy to hear you and your family are safe. I was worried about you. I live in Miami and can appreciate a typhoon all too well, here we call them hurricanes. One of my least favorite words in the English language. Stay safe!

It was nice after the typhoon passed through up here - gorgeous blue skies, like you said.

Didn't cause much damage in southern Kyoto, but I saw how crazy it was in Oita and Osaka!

Thank you. The typhoon did not hit this area and the worst damage I heard was the power outage in a small part of the town.

Yeah, the wind was terrible here, too, but not as bad as we had expected.

Typhoon wind was so scary when I was a kid, because houses had only wood and glass windows that rattled like crazy in a typhoon. It got amazingly better after we got aluminum sash windows.

We had sun later in the afternoon. Thanks.

Yeah, and the tornadoes in Kanto area! I hope we have no more typhoons this year.

Hi Obachan, came across your blog while I was googling during a quiet period at work (oops!), and I'm really glad I found it! Have been fascinated with Japanese food and its presentation since a (too) short trip to Tokyo last year. The views look fantastic from your place - and it is good to know that all is well for you and your family. We have been having some crazy weather in New Zealand as well. Take Care : )
