#6880: Whoa, a typhoon!

My favorite livecam from Japan is Toji Beach in Izu. A very nice beach, it is, and I've been visiting that live cam, a few times a week, for a couple of years, now.

Apparently that part of Japan is in the path of a typhoon. And the waves are epic.

I often watch that video and imagine being on that beach. Not sure I'd want to be there today!

This is a GREAT short story in that same vein.

"It's called 'hysterical strength'." Heh.

Okay, you're a ninja. She wrote an essay for a history class using invisible ink. Got top marks for it, too.

So, blizzards have struck the great plains. A foot of snow in the Dakotas. Here, it's going to get down to freezing, with a wind chill of 20 F.

Well, it's October. What do you expect?
