I don’t know about you but I’ve had enough of this rainy weather. This has been dragging on for days already. Being a teacher who sometimes gets weary of the daily school grind, I welcome suspension of classes with open arms. To us teachers, it only means one thing, more time to catch up on work and attend to the other things that’s been piling on our desks. But with the way things are going now, what with floods threatening to endanger the lives of a lot of people and submerging the whole metro in knee deep water, I would give anything for the sun to shine and classes to continue uninterruptedly.
PAGASA recently issued a new set of weather signals aside from the Typhoon signals that we know by heart, that would hopefully give us a better picture of what to expect in terms of the amount of rainfall. Many thanks to the Doppler radar machines which has been been properly installed and working in strategic areas all over the Philippines. Hopefully this color codes will give us a heads up on what’s to expect so we can be better prepared for whatever the rains will bring. Here it is for everyone’s guidance.
As of this moment, PAGASA already raised the red code for Metro Manila. I fervently pray that everyone is home safe, this too shall pass!
