When I was wrapping up my night the students at Iwakuni <ee-wah-koonie> Elementary school at the Iwankuni Marine/Navy Base were starting off their morning with French fries at 9 a.m. Japanese standard time.
We started off with the Typhoon season last year and talked about how specific locations are impacted.
They all walked away knowing that a typhoon and a hurricane mean the same thing and it distinguishes what part of the world these tropical cyclones are located.
Several students were chosen to ask me specific weather questions and why I chose this career.
Of course, I told them that I chose this career because when I was their age, I had a teacher who told me I should be paid to talk.
