Tropical Storm Malou passed by Fukuoka yesterday. Our school took its cue from the Japanese schools in the area, which closed early, which led to our having a free afternoon of what turned out to be some of the nicest weather since we got here. By evening some rain fell, and I assume that out at sea the waves got a bit dicey, so maybe it wasn't a total overreaction (we do have students commuting to and from school on the ferry). Mostly, though, it was an unexpected afternoon off.
Malou's still hanging over us today, though. The air is cool but so damp it feels like you've stuck your whole body in a humidifier. Basically, it's like living in a cloud. I worry about my electronics!
