Typhoon Chanthu

July 20, 2010

And another typhoon. Such weird names!

As a kid, I remember learning about the system of naming typhoons/tropical cyclones: they will always be named in female names, starting with A for the first typhoon of the year, the names going down the alphabet.

Female names because women are just as unpredictable as the weather.

Now that I think about it, it’s pretty stereotyping, yet humorous at the same time.

But now… All these typhoons have such strange names, I don’t know what to think of them.

Anyway, so, we’ve got the #1 signal on… Please don’t get any stronger… yet… The boss is going to fly out soon… Let him leave first, then the typhoon may hit whenever it likes (preferably not in weekends too!)

I’m trying to get through an airline’s CS line but it’s busy… Possibly because of the typhoon.
