Weather Report #1

It’s raining here in Baler since Saturday. We call it “ulang mayaman”. Not too light but not really heavy. A regular, but it shows no sign of stopping. That’s why the name. On the way to work, which was suspended later, I passed by 2 overflowing (Kinalapan and Duungan) rivers and one creek that now looks like a river. There was a radio news earlier that Sitio Gabgab in Brgy. Buhangin, the flash-flood capital of Baler, is again flooded and people are being evacuated. During typhoon Queenie, it also rained for a day in Baler and Gabgab was also flooded.

I notice that when typhoons hit above or North of Baler, the town receives less rain than when it lands below or South. Like when typhoons Paeng and Queenie hit the Casiguran area, Baler was not much affected. Only occasional rains and winds. But during the last two typhoons – Reming and Seniang which hit Bicol and Visayas, we get more rains and winds even if the typhoons were supposed to be more far from Baler during those times. Must be something to do with wind directions and geography.

And now, The electricity went out. Gotta go.

Sometime between Nov 29 and today, this post suddenly switched to private mode, which means that it became invisible. I wasn’t able to update yesterday because there was a scheduled brownout.
