The importance of last Saturday’s election for the Governor of Okinawa was underlined by God sending a mega typhoon.
Typhoon Trami went right over us on Saturday, which was polling day. It was the real thing! Go out and vote!
Power goes off at 11:30 am – no electricity, no AC, no water, no internet. The wind is crazy, howling and roaring with very heavy rain until about 2:00 when everything goes quiet as the eye of the storm passes over.
It goes crazy again about 6:00 and it also gets dark. I have no light to read by so I just sit there listening to the wind and hoping to sleep eventually.
