I see nothing good coming from this one. There are currently 3 typhoons out there. First time I have seen/heard 3 at one time.

Time to clean up outside again.

Time to sell and get the heck outta dodge before one of these things flattens you to the ground! :willy: Geez, seems like they get worse every year. :ack:
Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:

In Hong Kong for a few days and wouldn't you know it, looks like we'll be getting hit with a typhoon tomorrow. Hopefully the hotel and nearby bars & restaurants have stocked up on food and beer. I don't want to have to venture out too far in the pouring rain and strong winds...

Heard there's another typhoon hitting Japan. Hope this one steers clear of your place, Vito. :ack:
