LAST UPDATE (next morning) Everything is fine now. The cars are back on the road. Pedestrians are out again. Just lots of debris on the roads from the winds yesterday. It's still raining but at least I can go out.
UPDATE (02:27PM) That was quick. The power is back on and the internet connection is back. It's still very windy. Don't think we're in the centre of it yet.
UPDATE (12:21pm): If we're not in the eyewall of the typhoon already, we definitely will be soon. The winds have picked up even more. Downed signs, tree branches, and garbage whirling about.
The only cars out now appear to be the cabs. And one lone pedestrian. Is this person crazy??
Oh. We just lost power. My internet connection is gone. I'll post this when we get everything back up.
UPDATE (02:00PM): The winds have really picked up in the past half hour. The rain is really coming down. Sometimes it's hitting the windows so sharply that it sounds like hail. Can't believe there are still a handful of cars on the roads. No pedestrains.
Late Night: A night of rain and strong winds. The eyewall of the typhoon is expected to start affecting Taipei late this afternoon and extending until about 11pm tonight. Still a category 4.
I guess this makes up for last year when no typhoons hit Taiwan. Another sleepless night. I really hate this cold.
*sigh* Argus/Reya are giving me a hard time having them apart and Avon and Servalan insist on making snide remarks.
More dialogue stuff from the current story...
Reya: Why are we not together in this story?
Me: Well Argus left you at the end of the last story remember?
Reya: This is not acceptable.
Argus: I agree with Reya.
Reya: You don't have to agree with me.
Argus: I know I don't have to. I want to.
Reya: I'm not finished being mad at you yet.
Argus: What did I do?
Reya: YOU LEFT ME!!!
Me: Oh no.
Servalan: They're amusing
Avon: If you like that kind of thing
Me: Stay in your corner you two.
Servalan: Let's see how she manages this.
Me: Shut up!
Me: Alright Argus and Reya...how about if the two of you get to talk to each other?
Reya: Can I continue giving him a hard time?
Reya: It's not ideal but I can accept that, for now.
Argus: Do I have a say in this?
Servalan: She has him wrapped around her little finger, doesn't she. I like strong females.
Avon: This is inhuman.
Me: This is not a spectator sport you two!!!
