Safe Haven-HQ Scan by bQw Safe Haven-HQ Scan by bQw
There's nothing more surreal then sipping a venti latte at Saint Starbucks while a typhoon rages outside.

This is from the most recent typhoon to hit Taiwan, Jangmi.

There are a couple more pictures of typhoon Jangmi on my blog.

Hmm...this is what New Orleans needs...more Safe Havens...more Starbucks.

Please have a look at my 2009 Storm Calendar!

I have to give my wife half the credit. She's the one that sent me to Starbucks during a raging typhoon :D

Sort of reminds me of the song Tom's Diner by Suzanne Vega. And I mean that as a good thing.

I spend way too much time there...in fact, I just posted a dozen photos from Saint Starbucks in my blog ([link]).

But it does make for a good place to take street photos and because I'm there so much everyone knows me and no one seems to mind.

Hah, I live in England and we complain when we have a bit of wind, it's silly. I love watching other countries with their weather and how easily they deal with it. Lovely photo, the lighting is fantastic :D

Ahh...that explains all the Top Gear jokes about Heathrow shutting down. :D

Yeah I was born & raised in Southern California and it was the same deal. A couple of rainy days would bring the world to a halt.

Here there's a typhoon and Starbucks stays open ;P

hehe yeah, there's what....6 inches of snow and London comes to one massive stand still....its a real pain in the arse, especially when I went to work one day and couldn't get home because buses and trains stopped, took me 7 hours to walk home.

This picture is absolutely amazing. I mean it looks fake. Be it the black and white or something else it's GREAT (such a small vocabulary)

Thanks so much!

And believe me, typhoon Jangmi and my wife making me go to Starbucks in the middle of it because everything else was closed and she wanted something to eat was not fake.

Btw, if you ever want to go out in a typhoon, don't take an umbrella. It instantly becomes a flying projectile.

No problem! :)

Oh I believe you, it's the fact she wanted to go out in that that I can't believe.

That's good to know! Hopefully I never run into one! :D
