Tropical Storm 18W

We are currently awaiting the arrival of what is currently called tropical storm 18W. We are stocked up on supplies, water, food, and seasons of Gilmore Girls on dvd, so we are ready to spend the next day or two indoors (or at least I am :-) ). Guam in located in typhoon ally, so storms like this are nothing new. We are still required to shut our typhoon shutters, secure our houses, and stock up on supplies no matter the strength of the storm. Right now it is a tropical storm, and signs point to it remaining at that strength. It is expected to hit Wednesday night (currently it is 11:30 pm Tuesday night for me) so until then, Jarrett is going to work tomorrow to finish up securing his jobsite, and I'm going to go to my Bible study and run some errands. Here are some pictures of us closing our typhoon shutters. It was kind of fun, but hopefully we won't have to do it again for awhile.
