Typhoons 2018


#681

It is so quiet and calm I can hear the crickets chirping.


#682

That will be my teeth chattering. I left the A/C
on for too long.


#683

Hah. I can barely hear my television.


#684

Forgot to close a window and have water inside. Balcony flooded. Have heard Windows shattering (or similar crashing noise) outside. I suppose that I can clean up before work in the morning, assuming rain subsides by then.


#685

Unlikely. They’ve gone to bed and won’t be up until after most other people have already gone to work.


#686

According the forecast, chances are tomorrow the weather wouldn’t be too bad and the worst is tonight.


#687

ppl living and working in banqiao/tucheng have a nice win, as this level of wind and rain isn’t much more than a bad storm in the area, but get a day off work anyway.

Step 1. Think about work. --> done
Step 2. Write something on a piece of paper. --> done

Problem solved? Nope…


#689

so how’s the typhoon?

#691

Maria gave us blueballs. How fitting.


#692

#693

Just confirming: this is basically done, right?

Currently light wind and drizzle in Danshui. I was woken up by wind a couple of times during the night, but that’s about it.


#694

Pretty much. This is the perfect typhoon really, not much fanfare, bit of rain, and, most importantly, a day off!


#695

On my way to work…

JLLQltO

Long faces on all commuters…but I got a seat.


#696

Bosses in NTC are going to be pissed at the mayor today
Malls, restaurants, and movie theater owners have a huge smile


#697

My boss asks me what am I doing here. Some people who live in NTC did not come to work. TBH, if this was a private enterprise, I’d be home too.


#698

Taipei working and NTC having a day off is obviously pretty strange and causes trouble.

How can this be fixed? Have typhoon days set by central gov? Force some kind of coordination between the local govs?


#699

I think you don’t understand the difference between private and public.


#700

One of our directors is visiting from Japan, he takes one look at me as I walk in this morning and goes “I guess you don’t live in New Taipei City.”
