Its hot and humid, there is a light breeze but quite still, it is the night before a big typhoon is going over us tomorrow. I am unsure what to expect, could this be the biggest weather event I experience, will it just be a fizzer, will it just be windy and wet. Japan is hit with many typhoons but generally they are south, this one looks like she will go right over the middle of us, see previous entry with photos. Will keep you posted, by the end of tomorrow I will know.
