UPDATED: After Pedring

It has been 2 days since Pedring. I hardly slept a wink the night Pedring ravaged the Metro. The rattling windows and door kept me up most of the night. I slept at past 5 in the morning.

Lots of fallen leaves and some fallen trees around Bonifacio Global City area after.


Nothing compared to the flooding of certain areas in Metro Manila. Check out this post from Chuvaness to get an idea of Pedring's effect.

My in-laws had to leave that day. I was hoping their flight was going to be canceled. I actually do welcome the opportunity of having them around. But no call came, so H had to drive them to the airport despite the bad weather.

How pilots could steer and land planes under such weather conditions is beyond me. Kudos to them!

H came home with the story that motorists couldn't drive past the junction of 5th Ave and McKinley Road due to harsh winds at the risk of being blown away. Can you imagine?

I'm just glad Pedring's gone and typhoons don't last for days. I am desensitized to a lot of things but not typhoons. I'm fairly scared of them, truth be told. We rarely had typhoons in Region 10. I hope all of you are doing well now.

UPDATE: There are some areas which are still flooded and people still stranded. You can help.
