OK, I'm kidding. But it was pouring pretty bad, such that the roads seemed covered with a quarter inch of running water. Cars were driving on running water, not road.
So wow. Typhoons? That's crazy. I wonder what it would have been like to be on the beach at peak time.
I've always wondered, what's the difference between a typhoon and a hurricane? About the only thing I honestly knew about typhoons was the Typhoon character from the WWF when I was a kid (not that I watched WWF much, you just couldn't avoid it on TV sometimes). Well, now I know.
It's now flashing lightning here in Nanshan (the district where I live in Shenzhen), so I expect it to rain again tonight and probably throughout tomorrow? And I forgot my umbrella at a restaurant. :( Luckily, a colleague lent me her umbrella, she has another at home, and she'll call the restaurant to make sure they keep mine there. I'll get mine back from the restaurant tomorrow, I hope. Gosh darn, I need to figure out how to remember my umbrellas. This is why I don't own an umbrella in Vancouver. I can make do with a raincoat. Except it's too hot in Shenzhen to use a raincoat. :(
