The sky is clear, the sun is shining, and all we can see is the soft green fields that hammer you with their vastness. And if you stopped to observe, you'd almost feel a fresh breeze of air blowing
That was yesterday.
As I’m typing this, we’re bracing for a category 4 typhoon to hit any minute now.
A few hours ago, the government had issued an emergency alert. The boats and ships have been ordered to drop anchor at the docks and the ferry services has been suspended.
I guess that the best thing to do is to hunker down and weather the storm.
And in case you’re wondering, I’m in South Korea now.
Barley arrived here and the news came out that a significant typhoon was going to hit, and I used significant for lack of a better word.
I mean, have you ever seen an eye of a hurricane that has an eye that runs 57 miles wide?
Me neither. As the article above states, the eye of the hurricane alone is five times larger than the area of Los Angeles.
I guess that my choice of wording was “significant” fades in comparison to theirs “Freakishly huge”.
The truth is, this is my first typhoon and I don’t know what to expect yet.
Yesterday, the calm seas projected a certain aura of serenity. Today it looked like Poseidon the God of seas was fighting with his sister Hades the queen of the underworld.
Being so close away from the ocean offers a front row seat to the main event, but it could turn into a ground zero if the moody sea channels her inner harsh mistress.
I hope I have some raw footage for you all tomorrow.
But for now, I want to let you know that we are prepared with plenty of provisions and that I did indeed learned from the past storm I even bought that book and I actually did end up reading it again.
The storm will pass, like all others. I just hope there will be an insightful lesson to learn from this one too.
