Meanwhile in Baler, i failed to get the news that there was a typhoon coming. It was raining all day last Tuesday and i noticed that the Kinalapan River swelled to suspicious level. The rain switched to drizzle mode during the night. I saw a convoy of ABS-CBN OB van and pickup all lit-up like they're expecting another show like the December 2004 one. Too bad for them. The next day was a hot sunny day aside from the freak rainstorm that lasted for 30 minutes around 2 pm. Then it was sunny again. That's the weather report, this is Kidlat signing out.
