Today my husband is staying at home, though it's Wednesday.
Not because he is sick, but because of a typhoon. It's raining now. I heard a typhoon is going through Taipei city this afternoon.
In Taiwan, as a typhoon comes, everybody watches TV carefully. They are waiting for the official announcement of Typhoon Day-off.
Last night, the typhoon hadn't arrived yet though, the government decided to declare it. So today every citizen in Taipei are suspended from school and company.
*Japanese Word of the Day*

It's pouring rain, isn't it?
By the way, have you ever heard about 擬音語/gi-on-go/ in Japanese? 擬音語 means "onomatopoeic words. There are many onomatopoeic words in Japanese.
雨が...降る /amega furu/ means "It rains."
These blue colored words are the so-called 擬音語. Have a guess! Which word expresses the heaviest rain? I'll write the answer tomorrow :P
