Typhoon Mawar: Like Chickens With Their Heads Cut Off !

The first typhoon, each year, that comes anywhere near Okinawa

has people running around like chickens with their heads cut off. 

Well, I just don't panic that easy.

So, I came in this morning to see who had the best online-typhoon information for you.

Some scientists (I think) at PHYS ORG were at the top of Google's page #1.

They say that Typhoon Mawar is heading out to sea.

That's where this island is; out to sea.

Now, I'm gonna start running around like a chicken, too.

If you are new to the island of Okinawa or, if you have friends, family, loved ones here, don't panic.

This is just a baby typhoon and everything will be fine, just a little wet.

Maybe, I'll sneak out and snap a few photos for you, later.

I gotta run. 




The shocking aftermath of Typhoon Mawar.

This photo was taken through the front door of my office at 12:52PM today.

What's so shocking about that?

I was supposed to be rained-in and painting the place.

The heck with that. Think I'll get outta here and catch some rays.

On the serious side, we didn't even close the shutters on the house or pick up around the place to get ready for it. Barely Hurricane strength winds.

Pity the fools who get tasked with predicting the weather on this island. They prpbably surprise themselves the times they guess right !

All is well. In fact, it's lookin' nice enough out there for me to hop on a ferry and check out some other Okinawa islands this week !
