    1. Thank you Heidi. I look forward to writing more posts for you to read. I hope that they are entertaining and/or educational.

    1. Thanks Larah (the right half). Things sure are much better than they were a few weeks ago. As far as I know, we didn’t personally know anyone that was killed, so that’s good too. I hope to be able to get a generator soon, just in case we have that problem again. It would be better if it never happened again though. I sure got plenty of notes for the blog though, so I will at least have that for a few months.

  1. Handg in there bro!
    Have you or anybody else heard how Borongan made out during the storm? I used to go surfing there…

    1. Thanks David. Things have already started getting better. Now if I can just lose the weight.
      I have not heard anything about Borongan, but due to it’s location, I’d be surprised if it did not get hit pretty hard. I will ask some of the relatives later and see if they know anything. Don’t let me forget to ask and to let you know.

        1. I just asked one of my Filipino cousins here and he said he heard it got hit. According to him, it was hit as hard as Tacloban was, so I doubt there is much left there.
          If you have any relatives there, I hope you were able to get in touch with them and they are okay.

  2. Good to see you back. I posted my first article since the storm as you know about our power and internet problems. I just don’t have the patience or time on my hands to sit at the keyboard all day just to get something published. Anyway, I too thought it was a bit silly that many people in our Barangay began congregating near the sea wall to watch for the tsunamai. I really think that the rumor became so diluted by the time it got here, people really didn’t know what they were looking for. One guy even threw out “tornado” as a reason for the panic. It’s just More Fun in the Philippines.

    1. I read that. I tried to leave a reply, but I need to log in and I can’t seem to get that to work. I pressed the thing to change the password, and did, but it still will not let me in. That’s kind of weird, but I think I have 2 WordPress accounts and they get mixed up in there somehow, or I get mixed up.
      Anyway, anytime that you know of a storm like that coming again, let me know, I’ll listen. I had the same problem with people here, they just didn’t seem to give a care about a category 5 storm heading there way. I think they just did not understand the concept of “Category 5”. Well maybe they do now and will try to be a bit more prepared next time, for as much as you can be prepared for a storm of such power anyway.

    1. Write it Mark and make a few million. We’ll divide it up, but I’m not sure of the percentage yet, probably 50-50.
