Metro Manila and majority of the provinces bounding its region were pounded by liters of rain water for four days. Despite Maring, the tropical depression, not presenting devastating strong winds that may damage millions worth of properties; it did count as one of the worst weather disturbance to date for many Filipinos.
Once again, almost 60% of the National Capital Region went under water. Cavite and Laguna also suffered the same fate. A rather odd situation for the people from those parts for floods was a rare event to occur.
It has been days since school and work were halted causing many of our fellowmen to be indisposed due to the wide area flooding. Rain clouds have never been so anxious to release the heavy waters thus delaying the much awaited dryness to remedy this scenario. The storm is even more unwilling to move on.
Watching similar scenes on National TV has somehow put me in a different light. Seeing my fellow Pinoys still smile while their houses are plunged in deep water reflects the idea of hope. That no matter what circumstance life may bring them, there is always hope that will cause them to move on. That everything will eventually be okay. After all there’s always a rainbow after every storm.
