    Now I have to listen for hours to hubby moaning about his staff considering it a holiday instead of working from home.

    Music exams cancelled for morning session only thus far, so it'll also be a morning of listening to scales.

    Dog will be howling because he's a 36 kg wuss scared of rain.

    I'll be sticking my noise cancelling headphones on and playing Civ 6.

    Just captured this from HKO...



    This is the radar image showing the north west quadrant of #HAIMA...

    The yellow band is the eye-wall...now look at the track...tell me that eye-wall isn't headed directly over the territory...if that happens we will experience gales generally throughout Hong Kong...if you haven't secured your stuff properly, do it now...

    I could be wrong, etc...

    Ha ha, my husband just took our dog out for a long walk, and refused to take him home until dog had done a big smelly sausage. Didn't hear much wind last night, then again, our house is pretty sheltered. Today i'll be doing some sorting out of stuff and looking at accomodation.

    Wind definitely strengthening. Just had our first casualty on the roof with a large plant going over breaking the heavy pot it was in. While we were up on the roof surveying the damage a big passenger plane flew over heading North East, so airport must still be open. Wouldn't get me flying today.

    And every now and then they land one of those in the water.

    With a folding stool set up in the cockpit for one of the pilot's rellies, IIRC - or was that another water landing I'm remembering?

    Taller branches sometimes moving here. I reckon the MoD and Gurkhas found the most sheltered bivvy spot in town for Perowne.

    Today I'll be strolling on the beach, swimming in the sea and relaxing by the pool this afternoon. Probably do a spot of star gazing this evening with my eldest.
