OT: Anyone have a boat for sale?

As you may or may not know I've been living in Taiwan since last year.

Well, as of late the weather has been downright nasty. It has rained non stop since last week. 2 days ago nearly a foot of rain dropped, yesterday half a foot and today is still pouring. Surprised the city I live in isn't flooded yet, other cities a bit further to the south are under several feet of water.

AND to top it off, there's a category 4 typhoon heading straight for us. It could even be cat 5 by the time it hits eastern Taiwan.

Looks like it will hit Friday or Saturday. Have been through several typhoons since I got here but this is by far the biggest, and the non stop rain we've been having isn't going to help when this hits.

Instead of us sending you a boat, why don't you send about half of that typhoon here. That would knock it down to a category 2 and we could really use the rain.

Thanks all. I'm not a religious man but I do appreciate any prayers you have not just for me but the rest of Taiwan as a whole. This is going to be ugly, it's a category 5, barely passed by Manila and saw CNN footage that Manila is flooding and huge winds.

Secondly I came to Taiwan for several reasons, above all my wife is Taiwanese, secondly I want to improve my Mandarin, and in a year and a half here my Chinese has improved by leaps and bounds. I hope several years down the road that we can return to the States and that I can do something to help trade relations or something else between US and Taiwan.

Great song, although I'll be staying away from the hills, will most likely be a lot of mudslides.

Well, the city I live in somehow barely got touched although I'm still scratching my head about it.

As the storm got closer to Taiwan it went more north, the eastern coast of Taiwan (especially from the center on up north) is full of mountains, most likely when it hit the mountains helped disrupt it quite a bit.

Lot of cities around Taiwan got hit really hard, fruit farmers got hit really hard and it looks like watermelon and other fruits will be hard to come by.

However here in Kaohsiung there was really no weather that would indicate such a powerful typhoon, lucked out this time.

Thanks again all.
