Duck, Saipan!

Not the sort of "eye" I was expecting to write about this week, but here she is. Our first typhoon of 2007 is expected to hit in about 24 hours.

Unlike the coastal US, our buildings are constructed for these things, which come hard about every two years. Almost all our buildings on Saipan (and all the Marianas) are made of concrete, so we just board up the windows and wait it out. Hopefully no one gets hurt, and we get power back within a week or so.
