It’s just a few degrees above freezing this morning, and the sky is very clear. This is the view just before from Create Hall in Hachioji, where we have our volunteer classes on Sunday.
While walking through Seseragi Park on the way to Shinkoiwa station. It just landed in front of me on a flower. We hung around a bit until a car noise startled it at the end.
It’s now 6:30 p.m. Just after I got home the downpour began.
According to the Yomiuri Shinbun:
“East Japan Railway Co. has announced that it will halt all train services in the Tokyo metropolitan area after 8 p.m. Sunday due to the approaching Typhoon No. 24.”
On the way home I noticed the trains were unusually crowded for a Sunday early evening.
This is the first time I ever heard of a scheduled shut-down of all train services though. A lot of people are going to get stuck.
My storm shutters are closed.
Monta is oblivious. He’s eating dinner now.
