I’ve had mixed feelings about this typhoon season:
a) No major typhoon hitting us (Yilan) head on, apart from Nesat which turned out to be rather mild(ish)
b) Telim’s trajectory went from South of Taiwan to above-my-house to Fotbar in Japan, missing us altogether
c) We’re now in the middle of September, which is likely to reduce the chances for further Super-Giga Typhoons of Doom
Even though all forecasts at the beginning of the season prepared me for a mild summer, I wasn’t expecting it to be so uneventful. In before:“HURRR BUT HONG KONG!11!!” -> a) I don’t give a crap -> b) Even considering all the small/medium typhoons that went to HK/Macau and those that recurved in the middle of the ocean, it was still a very quiet season, as forecast by most agencies due to the Ninho/Ninha swap.
It’s a bit disappointing, but I need to accept the will of our God of Spinning Winds, who I am sure will fulfill my prayers in 2018. I can already see Him charging a Kamehameha of destiny all Winter…just wait and see!!!
Fuck, Winter…the rain…feelsbadman…I should open a thread about the Winter weather.
