Typhoon Muifa

Men were unloading sandbags at the apartment block this afternoon.  The building work on the block across the road has had all of its tarpaulins taken down, and there's some welding going on tonight, which I've never noticed before.  There was a car passing down the road, with a woman's voice through a megaphone.  My Chinese is negligible, I'm sorry to say, so it could have been a government warning, or just someone selling something.  But it sounded like the former.  We got an email from work, advising us to stock up and then stay in. I need to get all the plants, window boxes, and wee table and chairs in off the balcony, tomorrow.  It's due to land on Sunday.  What larks, eh?
