I did not go out today because the wind was way too strong! I did want to go outside at one point in the afternoon, but the rain started to pour as soon as I was getting ready.
Tonight, my parents and I went to a restaurant for hot-pots. As we were heading home, we saw a road sign and its street pole bend to the ground. That's how strong the wind was today.
That's all. Thought it is worth writing about it today.
Enjoy the nice long weekend, everyone, and stay safe!
