Tuesday, September 29, 2009

The Philippines Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services claimed that Greater Manila received 341 millimeters of rainfall from 6:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. on September 26, 2009. The previous worst rainfall was 42 years ago recorded in 24 hours on June 7, 1967.

There were plenty of homes and lives that were lost. There were stories of great sacrifices and bravery at the height of typhoon "Ondoy". The province worst hit by the flash flood is the province of Rizal. As I write, rescue missions and donations are still ongoing. I read a news articles that insurance companies maybe facing the biggest non-life insurance policy claims in the wake of "Ondoy". My head is spinning because I think I need a new insurance quote for non-life and fortuitous events.

I hear on news too that there are several crocodiles on the loose traipsing about the flood water in Pasig. The crocodiles are part of nature park in Pasig. The lot must have swum outside their enclosure when the flood water rose.

My house is in some sort of order now. Classes are suspended until tomorrow. In areas still wallowing in knee-deep mud, classes are suspended indefinitely. I am trying my very best to meet deadlines and calling and texting friends that Ethan's birthday party is postponed. Ethan turns 7 today. He knows that his party is postponed and he knows the reason why. He said it's okay.

Daughter #2, Ethan and I are on our way to donating clothes at a nearby donation center. After that we are proceeding yet again to the hospital. At 7:00 A.M. today, hubby was rushed to the ER. The kidney stones (of two weeks ago) decided to clog hubby's urethra. He was in terrible pain and according to D3 and D1, might need surgery after all.

Let me take a deep breath.

Okay now. I have to get ready to leave.

  1. naku, the stress is piling up again. ingat po lagi ms lena, kaya nyo po yan. =)

  2. Let me first say: Happy 7th birthday, Ethan.

    Ugh! I'm just at a loss for words. Parang walang katapusan naman ang mga nangyayari sa iyo. If these things happen to someone ordinary, she/he may have crumbled already. Not you though...and that's because you're anything but ordinary.

    Ingat ka palagi. Your body can only take so much. I know it's impossible to take it easy...but try.

    At a loss for words daw oh pero ang dami pa din sinabi...daldal ko talaga.



  3. good to know that you and your family is safe and ok. sad to hear regarding your other relatives na nawalan ng bahay.

    happy birthday to ethan. this will probably be an unforgettable birthday for him.

    hope your hubby is ok.

    take care.

  4. @ emz: hope your neighbors and friends are okay.

    @ huling: sabi nga ng header ko : life goes on.... minsan nakakapagod pero what can i do?... i just have to trudge on... thanks for the prayers, nakarating dito :)

    @ shimumsy: thanks for the concern. :)
