Memories of Typhoon

I haven't lived in Hong Kong for a long time,and I always avoided going back in the typhoon season, so typhoon seems to be really distant to me...but then I still have a lot of memories about typhoon.

I remember when I was small, I lived in a really tall and old building, when typhoon no.9 hit, I could actually feel the building tilting. I mean, it wasn't like it was going to collapse, but it was really "moved" by the strong wind...so it was pretty scary.

However, on the other hand, most students welcomed typhoon at that time, coz a no.8 typhoon means a day off from school, and since typhoon usually came in the summer, when the final exam at school began... so an extra dayoff was good for studying, when a typhoon came, almost all of my classmates were hoping it would escalate to no.8...

Also, one strange habit of my family (or my father) is that he always liked to bring us out for dinner during no.8 typhoon time. I forgot if I asked him why, but I kinda remember he once mentioned that it was nice going out to eat during typhoon...

Out to dinner during an 8 is kinda like celebrating a day-off from school. haha. Mr. P grew up in HK typhoons too. He was just telling me how noisy it was in their family's old apartment with the open balcony.
