Batten down the hatches!

Japan is currently being smacked by Typhoon Number 7 (seventh hurricane to form in the Pacific). I'd noticed some heavy rain since last night but hadn't really thought much of it. Typhoon 7 made landfall about 150km southeast of here a few hours ago and has been dumping large amounts of rain on the Kanto plain since last night. The winds in this one aren't so bad, only 40-60kph... but the rainfall has been substantial, from 10-40+ centimeters depending on the location.

Some train and air travel has been disrupted and some injuries have been reported but other than that, no biggie.

Things look pretty peaceful now and the walk home wasn't as wet as the walk to work this morning, so I guess that's a good thing.

On a lighter note, here are some pictures from Sunday night's Beer Garden Party at Tobu.

The spread. Food included with the all-you-can drink fee of 3500Y.

Trying to sneak out of a picture will only make matters worse... lol

See? Much better if you just go along with it...

Smiles all 'round.
