*Living chaotically on Goto Islands, for almost two months now. *

 Finally, about to experience a typhoon.

Well, it's actually here already...
I have asked locals for Steps to take for typhoon:
・Close the storm shutters.
・Fill the bathtub with water.
・Absolutely stay indoors.
・Bring inside anything that might get blown away outside.
・Put away Laundry poles and bases, and put cement bricks on top
・Keep a flashlight ready for power outages.
・Prepare drinking water for potential water supply disruption.
・Have instant noodles on hand that can be made with just boiling water on a gas stove, as cooking might not be possible during power outages.
・Stock up on cup noodles and bread beforehand, prepare early as they tend to disappear from stores before the typhoon hits.
・Regularly check typhoon updates (using the Windy app).
・Cover small windows without shutters from the inside using ・masking tape, but avoid going near the windows.
・If gasoline is low, fill up the tank (there might be a need for living in a car if conditions worsen).
・Have a cooler and ice ready, so you can move items from the refrigerator if there's a power outage.
・Stay alive

Hummmm... It would be reassuring if daddy were here. A mom and son, both newcomers to Goto Island, staying still at home.

To distract myself, I baked two types of bread, and both turned out to be successful, providing a sense of accomplishment!
(sourdough bread and regular sandwich bread)

Again, I recognized the abundance of fermented foods in Japan is evident here as well. The hours-long homemade yeast fermentation that takes place in Canada happens in just a few hours here, thanks to the optimal conditions for yeast, which also explains the rapid growth of mold.

Living in the heart of nature means coexisting with both its gentleness and harshness.
I must hold humble feelings toward nature within my heart as a human being.

I sincerely pray that today and tomorrow, everyone remains safe and out of danger.
