Finding Beauty with Imperfection

Typhoon Lan

Typhoon Lan blew through the area on Sunday afternoon into early Monday morning. 

The base shut down during the storm and only essential personnel were required and permitted to enter. Dave went into work Sunday afternoon in preparation for the storm. The base schools were also closed. I was so excited schools were closed because I was supposed to substitute on Monday! Yay, my first ever Typhoon Day! 

By the time the storm was close to us, it had dropped to a Category 2 storm. 

The news reports said our area received 6-9  inches of rain! So much rain!

Here is a picture of the soccer fields on base. Normally, that huge pond is the soccer and baseball field. 


Throughout the storm, emergency alerts would come in on our phones. The Google Translate translations were pretty funny. Haha! 


Our cinder block home was perfectly safe. Just a lot of leaves and debris. 

Dave came home early Monday and we went out for lunch and a walk around. It was wonderful to see blue skies! I feel like it’s rained so much recently. We had lunch in Kamakura at Rooftops. It was a beautiful afternoon. 


After lunch, we walked down to Zushi Beach. Guess who we saw- Mt. Fuji! 

 

The Beach was busy with surfers catching the storm waves. 



Check this thing out – it didn’t make it through the storm. 


We were very fortunate with this storm. We never lost power and didn’t have any damage. I hope the rest of Japan didn’t experience too much damage!

    Glad the typhoon was not too destructive in your area! What is the name of the sea creature you photographed? The sunny day looked glorious and I am certain that you enjoyed the day! Love, mom

      Thanks, Mom! I’m not exactly sure what the creature was. Definitely, gross!
