Our local menace, Megi, has been upgraded to Super Typhoon; she is now as strong as a class 4 hurricane.
The winds here are nuts and pieces of trees litter the roads. We will hold on until the 21st and determine if the seas have calmed enough to make the crossing to Ishigaki. Typhoons can leave the seas very rough for days after they have left the area.
I will be bat shit crazy by the 21st.
