I didn’t sleep last Wednesday night. I swear.
I spent the night in bed watching TV shows while playing Free Fall and listening to scary sounds—from the wind howling, rain pouring, and metal doors slamming. So scary.
Power out at 3:30 AM. My husband woke up at 4 and wanted to go upstairs to the roof deck and turn on the generator. I stopped him because it might be dangerous. So we waited.
At 5 AM, the driver came up to turn on the generator by himself, then electricity came back on around 6 AM.
I still couldn’t sleep, even when the entire household was awake. Our helper Mariza told me to go to sleep, but I couldn’t.
My husband biked to the neighbour’s house to deliver a saw and took these photos.
Every time there’s a super typhoon a car gets crushed in our village. Best to park away from trees.
These were taken at the park
Thank God, no serious damage at home, except for water leaking in a couple of windows.
I fell asleep at 5 PM and woke up at 9 PM, hungry. My husband and I drove to the nearest McDonald’s for a burger. Went home, slept at 3 AM and life is back to normal.
