A FLOOD WITHOUT A NAME

Last Monday night, while most of the Metro Manila population, the rain poured continuously. I woke up at around 2AM of Tuesday and saw our neighbors (in front of us) taking each of their cars out. The husband is working and tuned in to a live streaming news of an AM radio. News has it that there will be heavy rains for the coming days and that the water level in the Marikina river is rising alarmingly fast. There was already flooding in front of our house. It was already 3AM when husband decided to go to the nearest SOGO motel to get a room. By 4AM he already got a room and went back to pick me and our little boy. After safely tucking us at our room, he went back to our house to help clean up and try to put some stuff on higher ground.

That afternoon hubby came back, was actually forced to go back by my mother. My mom insisted that I might need help handling the little boy, which is far from true as he was having so much fun being reunited with his laptop (we hid it). But mom forced him to go anyway, as my mom and I had a fight that morning.

Anyway, going back to the flood, we once again had to really evacuate the house. The water reached ankle level inside the house. I’m grateful that it did not create as much damage as the last time. Although of course the trauma has just been reinforced.

Basically we had to stay in the motel for 3 nights and 4 days, and on top of that, had to have an exchange of ill-tempered words. Hubby had to endure that from me and his folks, and I had to endure that as well from my mom. Bottom line is, all is well with money, and without it comes chaos. Poverty complicates things. Yes, my mind is racing at perhaps a hundred miles per hour, due to realizations brought about by recent events. Don’t ask me to explain because things are just too raw and painful right now. Here are some pics of the memorable flood.
