This morning’s prediction for Pongsana indicates that it will pass east/northeast of Guam and Saipan. It’s a part of life here, everybody keeps and eye on the storm and makes their own judgement when to hunker down and batten the hatches. I am hopeful this cyclone will pass harmlessly, but I still got gas in the jeep, extra gas for the generator, made sure the typhoon shutters are loose and smooth running, took an inventory of the contents in my freezer, made sure the generator fired up, and picked up loose crap from around the house. Since I spent a couple days last weekend clearing brush and trimming trees, the foliage should present no problems. I need to pull the yard furniture inside the house, but I’ll wait for that. Hopefully the typhoon won’t hit and I can relax this weekend. It’s been a tough week at work and I could use the rest.
