It’s raining again, that kind or rain that is light but it never stops.

We are under typhoon signal #3 and typhoon Ulysses is traversing the same path that typhoon Rolly did a week ago, some parts of the Catanduanes province in the Bicol region are now inundated, water almost reaching the rooftops of some houses.  God help us!

Supposedly, November is already our amihan season where the cold winds of Siberia bring colder nights to our shores. If not for La Niña which our weather bureau said will last till April, we won’t probably be having these late typhoons. Come to think of it, it is the 21st weather disturbance this year and we average about 18 to 20 every year.

Rainy nights (provided they do not bring flash flood) are a perfect time to read while sipping a hot tea in the process.  I went back to reading Charles Martin’s books, my 11th read since I discovered the author.

One thing that induced me to start this? It’s the cover and the title not even glancing at the synopsis of the book. I am fan of Charles Martin, a Christian author who writes such deeply memorable characters. And he blogs too  and I can truly relate.

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?

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!
