I'm sat here at 4.30AM writing this entry for one reason only, and that's because there is a raging typhoon passing by just outside my apartment right now.

This is the first time I've seen the projection go up the Sea of Japan. Usually these things go up the Pacific coast and wreak havoc up that side. This time it seems to be heading straight over us. It's been going for some time now, and was much more powerful as it passed Kyuushuu and South Korea, killing six people through landslides and high winds. I can also hear emergency sirens across Hirosaki right now, on their way to typhoon related damage no doubt.
Anyway, in the time it has taken me to finish this blog the winds have died down a bit so I'm off back to bed.
