Josef and I left the house early to attend the morning mass at Our Lady of Light Parish. Today is the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Praying hard there won’t be floods in the metro. We decided to leave the car in the church grounds since it is higher there compared to our place. There was a drizzle and it was cloudy. We are blessed that at least for now, typhoon Ruby was downgraded to tropical storm although our area is still under the threat of heavy rains and winds when Ruby makes its fourth (and hopefully its final) landfall this evening in Laiya, Batangas. The latter is south of Metro Manila and we are still under storm signal number 2.
You know that feeling of anticipating the worst but still hoping for the best, meaning, this typhoon which has been here for almost a week now must be tired of hopping from one province to another playing a game of “step no, step yes” choosing when and where she would land next. Isn’t it about time that it leaves for good? It is so slow though at 10 kph with a gustiness of 135 kph. We would like to celebrate Christmas without more threats of rains and storms and bad weather. I am allergic to it.
Hope to see the sun’s face again tomorrow. I miss the blue sky and the white fluffy clouds up there. Since I could not dance in the rain, I’ll just wait for the storm to pass.
Be safe everyone!
