The weather has been dismal here lately.  The sweltering heat has been replaced by thick clouds, even stronger humidity and rain.  Our close proximity to a recent tropical storm has blessed us with a bit of wind.  Yes, I’m thankful for it as it’s the only relief from the humidity.

The air has been so thick that I even took off my raincoat in the rain because I was soaked anyways.  At least the rain doesn’t leave your clothes smelling bad.

Today we saw the first blue sky in quite some time as the storm has now passed.  I set up my tripod and took this time lapse video while I was away.  The glass didn’t reflect light very much, so the video turned out pretty well.

Be sure to look at the upper right corner of the video near the end.  You’ll see some very high clouds moving a completely different direction than the others.  Messed up weather!!

In a few days time, the Typhoon Halong is due to hit us.  The skies are grey once again.  Let’s hope the storm dies out before it gets here.  I’ve only got a few more days left on this trip to Japan.  I’d really like to get outside and enjoy them.  Wish me luck!

Enjoy the video!
