The Storm That Was

Yesterday I thought it was just going to be an ordinary rainy morning, even though school and government offices were already suspended. Unfortunately, I still had to go to work, because our client hasn't made any announcements yet.

Before 9am, when I had my usual coffee and yosi break, the wind was already exceptionally strong -- it was harder than usual to light my cig, my hair was flying everywhere, and I even felt I was being pushed by the wind -- at more than 1*0 pounds!

Around 10am during coffee break [again?! yes, twas so cold kasi!] with the Pepe Lopez girls, we didn't even dare go out for cigs because all hell was breaking loose already because of the damn wind and rains. There was already news then of a tree falling on one of the cars in the parking lot.

11am the electricity was going on and off already inside our building.

Lunch time and no more electricity.

Finally, around 12:30 pm we were allowed to go home!

But how can you go home, when you look outside, you see this:
