The Storm has Passed - Finally!

by Pa Rock

The all-clears have sounded and Typhoon Muifa has officially left Okinawa.  It was beginning to look like the storm that would never go away!

It is now late afternoon on Saturday.  The winds are still gusting and occasional rains whip across my neighborhood, but I have been outside and breathed some fresh air - for the first time in over forty-eight hours.  Two of my bosses have also called to check on me, providing my first human contact in as many hours.

I am concentrating on housework for the rest of the day, and tomorrow I will hit one of the local beaches and see what treasures the storm washed ashore!  Even a one-day weekend will be a treat!
