Eight years ago on September, Tropical Storm Ondoy destroyed most of Luzon, submerging even the country’s capital in flood at record-breaking levels.
Remembering then, the tremendous rainfall and unusually strong wind made husband decide not to report for work that day. My mother, on the other hand, who lives in Novaliches, Quezon City, was on her way to a wake. She went back home when she got all wet because of the rain. Little did she know it was more of a blessing and not a waste of time.
