|08 August 2012 - Flood from this Fuc%#@$, Freakin' Southwest Monsoon|
|27 September 2009 - Flood from Typhoon Ketsana / Ondoy|
I thought I was spared. It really is a humdinger of a southwest monsoon. Just like probably the thousands of families in evacuation sites right now, I owe this freakin' monsoon a blasphemous rant. It's sad however, that I can't do it here. :-( Just about when the weather is improving (a little bit, as it is still raining as of this writing), there's a knee-deep flood along the stretch of the avenue where my place is located. I can't go anywhere!
I'm like a broken record - this is just a bad deja vu. It's like Ketsana all over gain. I've got the pictures above and videos below to prove it. Take a close look. They look very similar, right?

I went down to the gates of our condo complex. It's flooded. I saw people carefully treading in the knee-deep dirty flood waters. There were no vehicles passing as it would be quite difficult to go through a long stretch of flood water. The avenue is about 2 kilometers long and mind you, it's the upper part of our district. Floods are deeper of course in the nearby low-lying areas.
I woke up early. I have a hard time sleeping with all those sound "seeping" through my bedroom window. I was surprised when I saw this weird fog rolled in. I normally see fog and smog in the months of December and January. I guess this is caused by this freakin' southwest monsoon. Check out the pic and video below.

The news programs on TV have reported that the waters in some of the flooded areas in Metro Manila are receding. That's good! Our place however, is a different story. Here's the pictures and short clips I captured of the flood in our area.
