“Typhoon Meggie”. Or: “this is getting silly”

Always with the weather delays. Today the villagers begin to board up their shops and homes and pull in their fishing boats in anticipation of the impending typhoon: code name Meggie.

All I can hear is Rod Stewart.

She started brewing two days ago and will hit Taiwan on the 19th; the winds here are already nuts. We must hunker down here until at least the 21st and hope that the weather cooperates and allows us to complete the last half of the trip. So close yet so far away.

The Japanese say that this is the 13th typhoon this year: they usually get 4. Nice year we picked eh?

All that’s left is to explore the islands ancient ruins and hope to get some diving in before the water gets too crazy.
