The Little Storm that Couldn't

After all the preparation and running about like boonie chickens with our heads cut off, turns out it was much ado about nothing. Kong-rey has turned north and will leave Guam relatively unscathed. Maximum sustained winds are not expected to exceed 40 mph here.

Of course, our gain is Saipan's loss. The Eye of the Typhoon (hmm, sounds like a song), will pass directly over Saipan in about 18 hours. Keep them in your prayers. Kong-rey is a small typhoon, by recent standards, but winds are expected to top 110 mph and can still do significant damage.
