Move postponed

Well, good thing I didn’t actually shut down my computer yet.  I woke up this morning to the sounds of water leaking in and getting the clothes I set aside for the next few days as wet as possible.  Nice.  Hello Typhoon Signal 8, how are you this morning?  You blow?  Why yes you do.

Just a bit ago, the winds at Ngong Ping (just over the mountain from my home) were blowing at 158 kilometers per hour.  For the easy reference of other Americans, that is 98 miles per hour.  Wind.  98 miles per hour.  That blows.

So now I’m sitting here with nothing to do because everything is packed or at least disconnected.  The movers aren’t coming because Hong Kong shuts down completely during a Signal 8 and I have no food in the house or a way to cook it if I did.  The milk is spoiled too.  This is turning out to be a most excellent experience.

    I think the winds of HK don’t want you to leave.

    Your wife and unborn child love you and wish for you to join them, no matter what the winds of HK may think!

    Sorry this sucks so bad. Wish there was more I could do…
