Yesterday afternoon floods actually entered our house again, something that didn't happen since Ondoy ravaged our country last 2009. Thankfully it didn't last long, and our house had two floors, so at least we have somewhere to be and sleep in for the night. It doesn't mean that we didn't get nervous and anxious about all our furniture getting wet, however, and we spent a lot of time hauling things to the upper parts of our house :(

Although to be honest, even if we were affected by the floods it is not as bad as some people get to experience. Most of the folks in other places were forcefully evacuated to schools and gymnasiums and basketball courts. Most people in the Mindanao areas have very little to eat and need to rely on help coming from the government in order to survive. Our situation was bad, but it could have been way, way worse I guess.

♥! Thankfully it has subsided a bit already, and hopefully the weather will be better now that the typhoon has left the country.

In my last email to Chiara, I was just saying this. Can't we ever be rained on without floods? Fortunately, my family hasn't ever experienced flooding yet. Lucky us. But watching the news induces headaches, especially when you see the lake-y highways your loved ones will be taking to get home.

I don't think so. With all the problems we have with garbage and drainage systems... floods are something we just live with, unfortunately.

I'm glad that you guys were okay, and that there was a place to stay the night! Am praying and thinking of you, take care!
