Typhoon Man Yi

A big typhoon has hit Japan. There has been damage in areas outside Tokyo. In west Tokyo where we live, there has been some rain and a little wind. The skies cleared a little at sunset. Click on the photos to enlarge them.

There was sun for a short time.

There really hasn't been much rain in our area. There was enough to leave some standing between the rows of corn in the field behind our house.

During typhoons, we close the shutters, drink tea, and watch the weather channel. (We close shutters at night, too.) The biggest danger of typhoons in Tokyo is wind. Things take flight.
