Batten down the hatches - 10/15/13 12:21 AM

Possibly the worst typhoon in several years is bearing down on Tokyo and the eastern coast of Japan in general. My school and most schools have already been cancelled in advance for tomorrow. Planning a movie day tomorrow. Will let you know how well we weather the weather.

Again, they don't name typhoons in Japan, it's just called plain old Typhoon 26.

Good luck and be safe. The island has seen enough strife lately.

Thanks guys. It's all around us now as I write this. Quite a show. Slept in for the first time in months, but the howling wind woke me up eventually - now it's at a level unimaginable to sleep through - except for my son who could sleep through a...typhoon.

I bet his power's down. Hope not, but that's what happens with cyclones. Waiting to hear from you, man!

Cyclone? *Ahem* Don't you mean typhoon? /confused

Check in when you can, lanovami.

Cyclone is a kind of general term, I think. All those storms are cyclones, just given different names depending on where they form.
