This past week has been a 'whirlwind' (pun intended!) of activity. Three potential Typhoons, #18W, Parma (which had me thinking of italian food) and Melor, have come and mercifully gone by with nothing more than some rain and breezy conditions. The good news is that we had a chance to prepare for the real thing and I know we would be as ready as we could be. The bad news is~ no Typhoon parties, and of course the destruction in the more northern Marianas islands that are in the path of the storms.
