I love the sound of rain for sleeping but this is getting old.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

I usually look forward to typhoons since I always get the day off but Japan could use a break.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Typhoons used to seldom come to land of Japan in October years ago. It looks like more would come because sea water is still warm by probably climate change.

Had enough of all this rain, that’s for sure. Hope the typhoons come on weekends or holidays again. Otherwise people get hurt trying to go to work.

Another typhoon. More rain. It could be worse though. Too bad not enough budget to help those in most need but yet the socialites get their budget.

Why is the Korean Meteorology Agent more advanced than Japan ,they give a detailed storm track like in America, the NHC in America, is the #1 weather agency

Good waves right now.

You'd think the AP would do some research.

The first has died and is a low depression, the second will not make land fall.

This from Japan Meteorological Website:

One has faded away the other out to sea.

long time ago everybody would say: Gods are getting angry.

in the Shinto culture, the nature is a living God who need to be respected.

The gods are furious! Or 'someone' has successfully weaponized meteorology and are waging weather warfare on Japan. These recent typhoons only hit Japan, then swirl into and disappear in the north Pacific, something smell fishy..

The sky is falling, the sky is falling

The rain is certainly falling, lots of it. And it's falling on places that are already waterlogged, places where riverbanks are already breached.

A typhoon doesn't need to make landfall to cause damage.

Commiserations to all the folk already flooded out of their homes, as still more of the sky falls on them. Stay safe.

I went cycling along the Edogawa on Sunday.

I could't believe how many snakes there were that were trying to get a few rays......their habitat has been completely drenched.The only dry areas were on the bike paths......I had to zig-zag to avoid them.

“Hope the typhoons come on weekends or holidays again.”

A sentiment shared by millions. If by chance however a typhoon does touch down on a weekday and work is cancelled, companies which care about their workers mental health will, in a spirit of omotenashi, always schedule a make up.
