When we woke up this morning, the passing typhoon had left the skies crystal clear. Now the skies have clouded again, the rain has returned, and we've felt strong earthquakes several times today ... the last about an hour ago. Several people on the other side of Japan died, houses and bridges fell. It started a fire at the nuclear power plant (fortunately, they say, a small one). Here, our windows and tables shook a bit.
However, when the rains come ... prepared or unprepared ... let it rain.
The typhoon's heavy rains flooded the archaeological dig next to our house ... I feel sad for the poor archaeologists. who now have nothing but a 9th century mud hole where they had been excavating. I guess that some of the remains they found had stayed safely buried for 1000 years, only to be washed away yesterday. I am sure that they will just start digging tomorrow where they had left off.
I guess the theme for today is ... whatever the weather, let the sun shine or the rain fall (let loud motors roar, and the internet sputter).
