He lives! Glad to hear you made it through ok. Judging by the photos you sent it looks like you made it relatively unscathed. I'm surprised at how few people lost power. Is it just because Okinawa is a relatively small island?
The hurricane down in the gulf is just missing Florida. My father-in-law lives in Tampa and works for the power company. Thus far, things have been pretty calm. Looks like New Orleans is going to take it in the pants again though. Should only be a cat 1 when it makes landfall though.
Here are the photos Vito sent me:
Vette before the Typhoon - apparently Vito must own stock in saran wrap and duct tape
Vette after the typhoon - Vito's wrapping job worked out pretty good.
Truck tied to the front gate - personally I would have used duct tape instead of rope
