Notes From Inside a Typhoon: Hayama, Japan
What I like about daytime storms is I can periodically look out the window and make sure the world is still in one piece. What I like about nighttime storms is I just sleep and don’t worry.
At 5 in the morning the wind wakes me. I get out of bed and slide the metal storm shutters over the glass windows and pretend to sleep until 6:30 when Brant wakes up to go to work. The metal storm shutters change the sound of the wind to a kettle whistling and whining.
