    Are we ready to call it a damp squib? One strong gust of wind here all morning and the OH is getting ready for work.

    Wind has been increasing over the last hour a bit...still rather bearable. People walking on the street without effort. But yeah, I think it might still hit harder soon.

    You don't move stuff from your roof indoors in a typhoon?

    Do you make a habit of building your stuff of tinfoil? Wow is it really that strong already?

    That big green bit is going away to the Sth east, not coming towards HK. The bit you aren't showing that is coming towards us from the north east is much thinner and may not make it to HK. Getting a bit of rain now, but I'm moving my money more towards meh than ooooh.

    It's too big and heavy to move, so hubby assumed it would be ok. Made it through the last 6 years. It was just in the one spot that the one wind gust we have had whistled through and a wide bush with broad thick leaves went sailing. Aerodynamics and shit happens.
