Broken Record

If you're not old enough to know what a record is, go read someone else's blog, please.

No, just kidding, you can stay. Just don't tell me you don't know what a record is. I don't want to hear it. I remember them because I'm old.

So, I already mentioned that there's a large-ish storm headed for this island where I've been for a couple of weeks. Well, now it's a lot bigger and badder. If you needed evidence, here you go.

Yes, it was originally forcast to be a Category 1 typhoon (that's hurricane for you western hemisphere folks), but it's currently a 2 and is supposed to be a 3 now by the time it hits Taiwan tomorrow. Oh, the joy. Why yes, I am supposed to fly out tomorrow; thank you for asking!

And here is the satellite picture of the joy. You can see that the eastern edge of Taiwan is already suffering.

So, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to put in my earplugs and sleep while I can, which I suspect won't last long. Then I will get up, shower, pack, and blog more if I have time before it's time to go to work, assuming that's in the plan for tomorrow (which is the current assumption).

Nothing like a little adventure.
