Wow. Typhoon Mindulle hits Shanghai today!
I happened to drive to Beijing Road from Pudong around 10:00 AM today. It started to rain. Soon, it became super heavy rain. I shifted my windscreen wiper to the fastest but still cannot see the car before me clearly. I felt my car was running at the bottom of sea, like a submarine. There is a long tail of splashed water after every car. The whole city looked so strange when I passed the Nanpu Bridge – like those in oil-painting.
At night, the wind became stronger and stronger. I sat before the window and watched the huge trees outside swinging back and forth. I have bind all the two small trees to the fence tightly so they will not get hurt in the typhoon.
Unlike Taiwan and Fujian, people in Shanghai seem to love typhoon. It cools down the whole city but does not bring too much trouble as it does in other places.
