This typhoon came across the Pacific from Japan. The weather reports warned us to be ready for the worst. In fact, not much happened beyond a bit of heavy rain. Down in Seattle, though, it was horrendously awful (in a mild sort of way).
Defective Yeti has a great link to KING 5 news where they were clearly grasping for a local lead story. Check it out (and be sure to view the "raw" footage and tell me if you see any horrible wreckage and dire destruction).
question: did people WANT there to be a disaster?
mompoet - flashlight at my bedside just in case, but I think I won't be needing it.
