The Magpie has been in Japan for a month. Since arriving, she’s experienced:
-One volcano (no, she was not on the mountain)
-One typhoon (Phanfone, which dumped nearly 11″ of rain on Tokyo last week)
And now, she’s got this bearing down on her:
Here’s a view taken from astronaut Reid Wiseman’s Twitter feed:
You can understand why I’m a little distracted right now.
Ah wow! They just can't cut a break over there…Hope the Magpie is alright…
Yeah, distracted is probably the 'kind' word. Reid just made that thing scarier. I'm going to believe Magpie is okay and finding ways to enjoy her stay despite all these weather mishaps.
Yikes! That's crazy – hope the weather clears up soon and she stays safe!
Thanks, everyone. I think she'll be fine. The storm has weakened a bit, though I feel for the folks on Okinawa right now.
Good grief! I hope it clears up soon. I've always wanted to visit Japan—even took a couple of years of Japanese. Of course, I forget it all now…
I'll pray for Magpie. 🙂
