The worst thing about yesterday’s typhoon was that it started too late so I could not see its full fury. It built during the afternoon and went totally crazy at about 9:00 – too late to see.
Howling and screaming the storm scared me and I only went outside when I realized that my diving gear that I thought was in a place sheltered from the wind was about to be blown away. I rescued it but was literally blown off my feet. This very amateur video may give you some idea – it gets confused when I fall over.
All power goes and I go to bed in the pitch dark with only my IPad to light my way.
I wake at 6:00 and everything is back to normal except the countryside looks like a huge comb has been dragged through it.
So here’s to you Captain McWhirr. I cannot imagine being out on a boat during that kind of thing.
