First, I fervently hope that my Filipino blogger buddies, Houseband00, Irene, Migs, and Juancho, are safe and sound. And Irene, congratulations on being picked Bestest Blog of the Day today! I'm so glad for you!
Here's the link to a short video clip I made when the storm was just starting:
Many houses and public structures were either heavily damaged or destroyed. Our house was unscathed, thank goodness, but our street looked like a disaster area this morning...the day after the storm. Behold:
Because of the extent of the damage caused by the typhoon, authorities are saying that power will be restored in two to three days. You read that right.
Two. To. Three. Days.
I'm counting my blessings, though. I and mine are safe and sound, our house was untouched. So what if I don't have Internet access for three days? I can't go to this Internet cafe at night, when I'm usually awake and everyone else is asleep. Besides, it's too damn far from where I live...the Internet cafes near my home don't have power too! :-(
Never mind. This, too, shall pass. But I sure hope it passes soon.
No Blogworld Saturday tomorrow, mes amis. I'll make up for it next week, or as soon as power at home is restored. In the meantime, I shall weep sorrowful tears at the thought of missing all your wonderful blogs in the coming days.
I hope all is well in your part of the world. Spare a happy thought or send some positive vibes towards the Philippines, will you?
Have a good weekend, everyone.
