Was a tad breezy mixed in with a spot of rain over this way but all in all none too bad, luckily we were once again just on the edge.

Ooopps, lets hope it just continues on that path into China rather than making a hard right.

We did get some damage to one vinyl house

But the vinyl was old and we were expecting something to happen during one typhoon so already have a replacement sheet on hand. This is one reason why we are moving away from vinyl and using PO film instead, once vinyl gets a hole it can unzip in high winds whereas PO film doesn't suffer from that so much.

It's never a good time but at least there's nothing growing in it yet so that does mean we can take our time replacing the sheet. We also lost the frameworks down by the chickens you saw and the nasu took a beating so we might rip them out and get something else planted there instead, they would have been finishing in another week or two anyway.

Sorry to hear about your losses, will it take you long to replace ?

Let's hope typhoon #25 doesn't veer any further south from it's current course.

I don't think it's unfair to ask Korea to take one for the team this time around.

Unfortunately it does but with each set back you come up with a strategy to mitigate that situation in the future.

Looks like most of us should avoid the worst of it.
