Typhoon Signal 3

The Hong Kong Observatory has hoisted typhoon signal 3 at about 11 am this morning. We are also in a red rain alert. It is POURING!!! And, man, this rain is cold! It isn't like Thailand and Africa where the rain was warm. This is like Oklahoma rain. Even in the summer time, we have cold rain in Oklahoma; well, at least most of the time in the summer.

This tropical storm doesn't have a name yet; only a number - 15W. It doesn't sound very menacing and it looks like it is going to pass safely to the south of us. But, boy, it is POURING RAIN right now!
