While enjoying dinner at Sushi Tei, the heavens descended upon us. There was angry thunder and indignant lightning. It suited my mood perfectly.

We knew we were in trouble because we did not have an umbrella, but I was in one of those moods where I think walking in the rain would have been cathartic. Except, you couldn't quite walk in this downpour. You sort of had to wade.



It really seemed as if Hurricane Wilma had stopped by in transit, just to say hi and to have a bit of fun.

Of course, this meant our living room was bathed in rainwater as well. So, there was much cleaning up. On the bright side, Singapore was about 3 degrees cooler. It should always be this way.

Have you seen the reporters in the middle of the hurricane? Sure they want to cover it. But where is the logic for physically placing yourself on a beach as a hurricane hits? What are they thinking? "Hey maybe no one's done this before." It's the same exact backdrop every time. If it weren't for the graphics, you could take any hurricane footage from the last 20 years and you wouldn't be able to tell which hurricane it was from. Is it more believable to see a guy squinting through the rain holding a microphone getting his raincoat blown away for you to actually say, "Yep, it's real." I don't know about you, but if some weather person sitting in a comfy studio showed me a satellite map of a giant gray spiral covering Florida, that's all the evidence I need. Yes, I believe you already. There IS a hurricane out there!
