Back to Normal

Back to normal, I’d like to think that’s the state of things today. Yesterday was chaotic. Typhoon Pedring (international name: Nesat) battered Manila and several provinces with gusty winds and rainfall. It was actually more wind than rain. I swear, I could hear the whistles and howls of the winds from our windows. It was scary. It didn’t help that we had no power the entire day. It was a good thing work and classes were suspended.

I was at home with my two siblings all day. My mom, dad and sister N braved the typhoon and joined a few relatives in going to the wake of my aunt in Pantabangan, Nueva Ecija. They planned to attend the last night of her wake and the burial service scheduled this morning. They arrived in the town last night, but not before getting stranded at a zig-zaggy road leading to my aunt’s house. The water from the river went above the bridge they were about to cross. They had to wait for a few hours for the flood waters to subside. I kept calling my mom to check on their well-being and I was extremely relieved when I got a text from her informing that they finally reached their destination.

We are without electricity until now. I heard Meralco personnel are still repairing the power lines in our area. So sad. But at least the typhoon has left Philippine territories already. :)
