Anne tells me just a bit ago about the flooding going out guys. Sure am blessed god was watching over her she was laid off day before the flood. Will tell you god sure can work in mysterious ways. Metro Manila and most of neighboring places were effected. Must be rough just finished talking to anne luckily she is in good neighborhood not effected.

Glad she is in a safe, non-flooded area. Not a typhoon here but storm to the North keeps pulling moisture in from the West. Should end by Wed night sometime. Many areas including Angeles and Subic canceled all schools today as a safety precaution.

Yes I would not want to be in that position. Trully Anne and I want to be in Manila for work oppurtunities but the flooding i saw looked rough. Ya Anne said roughly 2-3 days it will be gone. Its ok just one more issue to climb this time of year no big deal. Ya when me and anne decide to get place I want place that is far enough off ground in case of flooding for prevention.

You be careful down there Y'hear??? Don't want to read about you in the news! Be sure to take some of those good photos that you usually get when traveling...

You must be sitting at Swag having a cold one. If you see Agnes, the hotel Mgr, tell here that Viol and I said hi..

Its really coming down out there now. Flooding in my area, luckily it never seems to get close enough to us to be a problem. Thats in the two years i have been here anyways. Going to the market is always fun though, waist high in water.

Same up here East of Angeles. No floding in our area but never-ending rain.
Can't complain though as it's keeping things cool.
Sounds like you'd better buy a small boat down there!

It is definitely nice and cool. I havn't even used a fan today let alone aircon. I actually love it when it rains here but when it gets like this it starts to get a little worrying, especially with our internet cafe being at ground floor level lol.

It caught us out this time around and we didnt get our weekly food in, so kinda hoping Pizzahut can deliver via raft lol

Hope all your computer gear down below says dry. Seems like in Manila ya never know for sure how bad or how deep it's gonna get in advance.
During the rainy season we keep extra canned food, crackers, powdered milk etc in a 72 hour emergency storage just in case of problems. Even an extra 25 gallons of drinking water in the event of an extended power outage when water can not be purified. It does look like it will get a bit better but local dams on the island have flood gates open. so that increases the flood potential a bit in Manila.
