Typhoons 2018


#921

I wasn’t talking about me, but about you! Despite all those things you said I don’t think your job compares badly to regular jobs out there.


#922

Then join me and Zapman to burn some offerings to the job god!


#923

Why always so dramatic?


#924

Because the typhoons always come on holidays and weekends.

And I am Latina. We always go 11.


#925

I can stop them with my "Godly’ powers! Do I need to?


#926

What does that mean? Go bat shit?


#927

#928

Just passionate.


#929

Might.

Typhoon Mangkhut expected to be closest to Taiwan by weekend

Typhoon Mangkhut predicted to be closest to Taiwan by Sept. 15 or 16


#930

The eye is passing well below Taiwan (as per windy.com)


#931

The eye doesn’t do the damage though. Windy’s forecast will still fuck over KHH.


#932

Keep safe, my Southern friends. Don’t forget to take plants and furniture inside.


#933

Just posting this multi-agency forecast link again: http://www.typhoon2000.ph/multi/?name=MANGKHUT


#934

nobody go to Hong Kong or Macau next weekend, OK?


#935

Looks like it will just ruin the weekend and be gone by Monday.


#936

Windy makes it look like Taiwan weather will be nice.


#937

You mean this weekend. I am going next weekend :).


#938

from Monday/Tuesday, it can still be called next weekend. i.e., the next weekend that occurs after this day…

In some places that’s considered standard English. In other places, they’re accepting of either form. In yet others, there be pedants.


#939

Ugh, of course. Even the typhoon doesn’t want us to get a day off.


#940

It looks like Mangkut is projected to head slightly farther south by this weekend. Is rain in Taipei still a given? The rain forecast seems to suggest this.
