Enjoy the weekend but please take care. There is a storm alert issued until April 17th. Here are some serious yet slightly humorous tips published by the Foreigners Community Service Station (Note: these are copied directly so please pardon the Chinglish):
Please close the windows and doors properly.
Do not park the cars under the trees.
Move the potted plants, precious items, articles placed in high altitude, beach table and chairs and umbrella into the house.
Switch off TV, PC and Cable Modem if there is a thunder.
To check whether there are leaves blocked sewer and timely clean them. Open the lid of sewer before the storm.
You’d better stay at home during the storm.
---Please do not stay at the top of mountain or building.
---Please do not holdup an umbrella, do not take some items with metal.
---Please keep away from trees, telegraph pole, billboard and anti-theft net etc.
Please do not use mobile phone outdoors.
Please do not use faucet and solar water heater.
Be careful while you are out during the storm. Due to the slippery and narrow roads, dense trees outside, please take care when driving especially in thunder.
OK, now let's move on. If you're like me and plan to brave the storms this weekend, here are some great ideas for what to do.
