Tropical Storm - Choi Wan, headed towards Saipan

For the past few weeks we have heard of possible Typhoon warnings, etc... but nothing has ever come of them.... Well Yesterday and Today that is all we have heard about.... On signs, the radio, the internet, etc....
Apparently there is a tropical storm coming towards Saipan, as of now, we wont be in the eye of the storm, but we will definatly feel the affects.... and they say it will hit us late Monday morning, Early evening Sunday for all of you back home....

So as the warnings on the radio have been saying, today Mark and I went out and bought supplies... If this really does hit us, we may be without power/water for a few days, or possibly awhile. So if you dont hear from us for about a week, dont be surprised =) We will be safely inside our home, playing cards by candle light, starting to smell from the sweat we have occured from the strong humidity, with no power, no water, and canned food.... mmmm mmmm goood =)

There hasnt been to many signs of a storm yet, but there definatly has been more of breeze today, overcast skies, and some rain.... but we live on a tropical island, and that happens.... SO we will see if this really does happen...

We both think we are messed up in the heads.... in a strange way would love for the storm to hit island, just to experience it, etc.... but at the same time, life would be so much easier if it would just by pass us.... Oh well, I guess we will find out in less the 24 hours what will happen!
Please keep us, our friends, and our island in your prayers when you think of it.... Typhoons arent too dangerous, unless you put yourself into that danger of walking outside in it, but still will make a mess of our island, and a mess of peoples homes who dont live in great conditions.... some homes could possibly be lost.... SO PRAY. =)

But we are good, we are safe, we are prepared.... lets see what you've got Choi Wan!

If and when we can, we will keep you updated as to what is going on.... You can always check out the national weather service website, or google, joint typhoon warning center, and we are #15, Choi Wan....

Love you!
M & B
