Wish you all
A Blessed Christmas and A Prosperous New Tiger 2010 Year!
Tornado watch was issued for the whole State since last night. Before dawn a gust of 60 miles wind streaked across the upstate. Our neighbor's downed trees damaged our fence.
Wind damaged to our next door neighbors' sign, roof, and blocked driveway.
強風損毀了左右鄰居的招牌, 屋頂, 擋住了行車道。
More wind damages were done beyond my neighborhood. Some areas still have no power.
These two types of plant are used for Christmas decoration too.
Nandina Domestica or Heavenly Bamboo, originally from China and Japan, a symbol for good luck. The red berries are winter food for birds. (Description on left).
I dreamed about my Alma Mater-Tamkang University last night. Recently, I read about her on Rev. Chuang's Blog (A much diversified blog, I recommend.) He mentioned about their visit to Tamsui on Thanksgiving Day.
To quench my thirst, I searched and found some pictures on the internet. The university grew so big. In my memory, I can only recognize the famous slope steps, the classic lanterns, and unique palace classrooms. I hope I will be able to visit again in person soon.
這個夢老在我腦中恍。於是上網搜看淡江的照片。淡大本校區闊展得我都難認了。幸好還可看到天天爬上爬下聞名的克難坡, 古典的街燈, 和宫殿式的教室。但願我能盡快回去舊地重遊, 重温年青時的往事。
We had a tornado warning this afternoon. TV weather forecasted a severe thunderstorm would pass through our area between 3:30PM and 4:00PM. With heavy rain and strong wind, the storm passed without touchdown. TV News reported only minor damage. Thank God.今天下午三點時電視插播龍捲風警告。氣象台預報: 三點半到四點之間強烈的暴風雨將經過我們住家附近。幸好一陣強風暴雨掃過而未觸地, 新聞報導没什麼損傷。感謝上帝!
