... in Japan DOESN'T mean snow, ice, rain, etc.
It means TYPHOONS!
I type this on Thursday afternoon at school. Lunch break. We just recieved word that if the current typhoon, just off the coast of Japan, doesn't change course, it will hit us straight on.
That means there will be no school tomorrow. That means three-day weekend.
So, to fill you in a bit about typhoons, I have created a mini, do-it-yourself lesson on typhoons.
Tracking for Japan:
http://www.jma.go.jp/en/typh/0709.html (to see the track of the typhoon)
http://www.jma.go.jp/en/warn/ (to see the severity of the typhoon in our area (Nagoya is in the middle of the east coast)
Between typhoons and earthquakes (yes, we've already had an earthquake drill this week), this is going to be a fun, fun year!
