Friendly Skies

This is how things looked in Taipei today.


This is how things looked farther out.

The subject of the photo is Sepat, a Category Five storm leaving the Philippines and heading our way. Taiwan is at the upper left.

I've been told that the sky never looks better than just before a typhoon arrives. Now I'm a believer.
