Typhoon Soulik

posted by Martin Rubli at 05:27

This weekend we got hit by the first typhoon of the 2013 season. Unfortunately the timing was once again such that the typhoon vacation fell on a Saturday.

Below are a few photos I took this morning after the worst had passed.


You'd think the security guards would have enough job dedication (or at least common sense) to walk around the building before the typhoon and move loose things to safety, but apparently that's too much to ask for $1400/month/apartment.

The people who (re)stabilized the trees after the last typhoon apparently didn't learn much, so the the trees in front of our house got uprooted again.

I'd feel sorry for the owner of this new scooter, but you can estimate his IQ from the fact that he removed the rearview mirrors.

This shop's sign also came off and got blown all the way to the other side of the street.

Typhoon day is always payback day for those riders who inconsiderately park their scooters on the side stand, thereby making it harder for people on their left to get in or out.
