A tropical storm is expected to hit Guam by tomorrow afternoon with sustained winds of 35 mph and gusts up to 60 mph. We closed the storm shutters and FM had to make sure our lawn gnome was safely put in the house. Sure glad we upgraded our typhoon supplies to include Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine!
UPDATE (as of 9am on Sunday): The storm has been named “Tropical Storm Saomai”. Not a a good sign because that means it’s big and bad enough to have a name. Brave Ulysses has great updates on the storm over at his blog including video – check it out.
FM summed it up well last night when he went out for one last thing (more beer), he said “You know it’s going to be a bad storm when you see your Baptist neighbors buying a bottle of rum.”
