Re: the title of this post. That’s the sound that the rain makes in Japanese. A supertyphoon is making its way through the islands today. Already, this storm has sunk at least one ship, and overturned a truck or two. According to the newspaper, “five people were injured after tripping or falling from the roofs of their houses.” Well, we’re not up on the roof yet, but it is pretty wet and windy. One of the good things (can I say that?) about a typhoon, is that it keeps the daddy home. Today was supposed to be the start of the summer baseball tournament, but obviously, opening day was postponed. Right now my husband and the kids are outside getting wet on purpose.
