Typhoon Kompasu

Today we are suppose to have a Typhoon pass over us. The timeline keeps changing so we are not sure exactly when it will hit. Yesterday we were told it would hit about 9am and be a cat 1 storm but now it's suppose to hit at about 3pm and it will be a cat 3 storm. Kompasu was so nice to stay out in the water and gain strength before coming onto Okinawa. The trampoline has been tied down and sandbags added. The storage shed also has been tied down with sandbags. All loose toys have been picked up and put away.

After one day of school it has now been cancelled today because of the typhoon. We have rented movies and games and will have fun spending time together as a family riding out the storm.

I think we are ready. Bring it on, Kompasu!!

Make sure you let one of know that you are okay after the storm, please. Either call me or Shannon. We are both on pins and needles.
