We’re right now in the midst of “the strongest storm to hit Japan in 25 years.” Huge gusts of wind are slamming our old house and the feeling is just like an earthquake. The news is brimming with stories of damage from the storm. Rooves being blown off and trees felled all over the place. A large truck on a raised highway flipped on its side, snapping a metal power pole which in turn is flung into the river below. A bus stop covering collapsed and hurled rolling into the middle of the street. Smashed glass as Kyoto Station, several bicycle racks with flung far into the air along with dozens of bicycles, a wall of scaffolding torn from a tall building in Osaka, its panels raining on the street below. A tornado warning in Wakayama. Never seen anything like it.
