Whenever there are typhoon signals in your place, is this a reason for celebration..(no work,no classes,time to relax) or you hate in when it rains? thanks guys.

When I was a kid, I used to celebrate for same reasons but not now. I am rather worried because thypoons are normally accompanied by big floods in different places. Our place is one that is prone to flood and although our house is elevated and could not be reached by flood I can't help but pity the neighbors around us whose houses are being flooded. Also the other people in other places as could be seen on TV. Typhoon is not a thing to be celebrated. It brings a lot of destruction to life, to plants, to properties. However, for the kids they are too young to understand, so I can't blame them if they are rejoicing when there is suspension of classes due to typhoon.

It's good news and bad news. Good news for students who don't like to attend classes sometimes or always, good news for those wo have no time to relax and suddenly found themselves relaxing at home and watching the effects of the storm. Bad news for commuters who get stuck in traffic because of floods. Bad news for disaster relief workers because so many people to help so little people helping. Anyways, in our place we seldom get typhoon alerts because we are always NOT a typhoon path. Infact we ask, why is it not raining here when there's a typhoon somewhere out there?
