Typhoon Muifa Rages On!

by Pa Rock

We were sent home from work at noon yesterday (Thursday) as the early winds of Typhoon Muifa began picking up dangerous strength, and by last night the island was rocking!   It is now nearly 6:00 p.m. Friday, and the winds have been raging all day.  Our official weather condition is TCCOR One:  Emergency, and the sea conditions are East-West Danger.  Unbelievably, Okinawans are still driving their little cars up and down Highway 58, the island's main traffic artery, though there are not as many vehicles as usual on the road.

Last weekend I was sick with the flu and only managed to leave the house once during what was a three-day weekend.  This three-day-weekend I may not get out at all.

Please send sunshine and good health!
