So, typhoon Vongfong has passed us or as the Japanese call it Typhoon #19.
It was a good thing that Satoshi had the day off yesterday because of National Holiday. JR West shut down most of their trains at 16:00, though most of the private lines ran as usual.
Still, we stayed in all day...well, there was a point where Satoshi thought we could go out to have lunch, but after getting ready and walking a couple of feet from home, the wind picked up and it started to drizzle...so technically we stayed in all day.
One thing we did was bring in ALL the plants from the lanai. Usually I leave a couple of the bigger plants outside, but this typhoon sounded like it was going to be a doozy.
The winds and rain picked up at about 9-ish at night and pretty much didn't stop until morning.
Usually these typhoons break up and turn into storms, but this one is still a typhoon and making its way up the coast of Honshu.
Hope the rest of Northern Honshu and Hokkaido will be okay.
Take care everyone!
