There was a typhoon in Tokyo last week while I was here in Japan, but I didn’t know about it until it was over. My guess is it wasn’t much on the typhoon scale and I hope Katrina isn’t all she’s cracked up to be on the hurricane scale. I gather she’s been “downgraded” to Category 4. Good news for now. As a lover of N’Awlins, the kinds of hurricanes I like down there are the ones that come in a glass over ice.
