Typhoon Pedring: No Work!

Very. Very. Rainy... and Windy.
I tried to brave the storm this morning to try and go to work. Leaving the village, I was advised to head home already. It was the best news of the morning... like an answered prayer.

Simultaneously, a transformer in front gave a fireworks display. It wasn't too celebratory, though. Power was out when I got home.

The rain kept falling (and still is). It was extra windy this morning, too! I thought that Pedring was mostly going to bring rain?

As selfish as it sounds, I couldn't have been happier to sleep in until past lunch. I was smiling (kilig and all) while tucking myself into bed.

Here's Pedring from my perspective today:

So many scattered leaves!

Deformed plants in the plant box.  

Our semi-flooded balcony. Playing again with reflections.

One of our trees just snapped in half!

An important learning: always charge your batteries while there's still electricity. Good thing the electricity was back right when my phone was near empty.

I hope that everyone's safe and sound.
