    ^Up until July next year when 5 or 6 typhoons have gone by and water levels at Angat and other reservoirs are filled to spilling capacity and contractors will unceremoniously open the floodgates just to let water out, we’ll look back to 2019 and wish dams were half-filled. Like the brains of people who think they know more than the rest but could only stutter in the face of scrutiny and criticism.

    “Like a wronged woman, the rains came like whimpers and tears, slow, slow, into the eternal bowels of sewage and canals.” - Chinese haiku.

    Ok, but not the most appropriate description of today’s rains in MM. Elsewhere, it was devastating, especially Legazpi City, knocking off power lines, ravaging the airport facilities, stripping roofs from homes, and surging sea water onto popular Embarcadero walkway. There’s a mini landslide in Guinobatan, Albay that practically levelled the parochial farm of my father’s family, an event once had during the Mayon eruption in 2010. So much is the fury of Mother Nature and Tisoy.

    Two positive effects of typhoon Tisoy:
    #1 more water for our dams
    #2 fresh air all over Metro Manila

    Took this photo (Mi 8+GCam 7.0) of the smog-free Metro Manilal last night :)

    Ditto about the fresh air, but the trash all over is terrifying. Never saw a river filled with plastic bottles, plastic bags, styrofoam, tin cans, distressed wood, even a freezer, as bloated a garbage bin as in Estero de Paco.
