My first typhoon!

We received a call about an hour ago from the principal of our school -- as we saw his number pop up, I wondered what trouble one of our students had got into -- but turns out he was calling beacuse school tomorrow is canceled as a typhoon is scheduled to hit Shanghai tonight. 
Is it strange that I am excited about this?  It will be my first typhoon and I really love crazy weather (especially if I'm inside and safe).  Our students of course were thrilled to get out of school and after a little research we found that all schools in Shanghai have had classes canceled for tomorrow.  Woo-hoo!  Typhoon Kompasu is on it's way!
