On Friday & Saturday, we had a typhoon of level 3. A typhoon is similar to a hurricane, and their occurrence is another indication that we are living in a sub-tropical environment. Level three is medium-severe. The highest level is 8 when most businesses will shut, and the subway stops running. This weekend we had very high winds and heavy rain. We were happy that we could not feel our building moving. Saturday was quite miserable so we only ventured out to our classes and to the local mall for dinner. It feels as if we have earned some kind of “badge of residency” now that we have experienced our first typhoon.

at least you have a good attitude about it! after our hurricane experience in NC, (evacuating in middle of night with pets, losing 3 cars and a furnace to the flooding etc) we were ready to hightail it out of there!
