Typhoon Nepartak Came and Went Quietly in Taipei

Hello everyone!  Just wanted to give you a quick update on the Typhoon Nepartak.  We were VERY lucky that the Typhoon's affect was very mild in Taipei on the North side of the Island of Taiwan.  I was so worried as I have never experienced a Typhoon or Hurricane before but luckily we just got light winds and thunderstorms.  My family and I were all safe and sound, and I even got a day off work that I was able to use to stitch a little bit!

I'm not trying to make light of the situation though that caused major power outages and a handful of deaths in the South.  My prayers go out to those who lost family or were injured in the storm.  This was only our first Typhoon of the season and unfortunately Typhoon season here lasts until November.

See below for a video of the storm and a bit of the aftermath.
