Calm Before the Storm

Deep blue skies over Taipei. 

We’ve had beautiful blue skies the last two days in Taipei.  This is all courtesy of a category 5 super typhoon called Sepat.  The typhoon becomes a category 5 storm when sustained winds are more than 160 MPH.  Sepat currently has winds of 160 MPH with gusts to 195 MPH and is headed straight for Taiwan.  It is scheduled to hit in the next 48 hours.  Things should be quite interesting in the next couple of days.
