Wet Christmas [Watery/Outdoor Wednesday]

I am not wishing for more rain, certainly not on Christmas weekend! But we have been having cloudy skies and light rains so I am not discounting the possibility of a cold, wet Christmas. A real bummer especially when I will be driving out of town on Christmas eve.

"Northeast monsoon associated with moderate to strong northeasterly windflow affecting Luzon and Visayas. Diffused tail-end of a cold front affecting Mindanao," this is according to PAG-ASA. Thankfully, there is no tropical cyclone detected coming our way.

These watery photos were taken in early December at Bonifacio High Street while waiting for the rain to let up.

It was snowing today in Illinois (U.S.A.) but overnight we are suppose to get rain and icy conditions. I am glad all our Christmas shopping is done. Tomorrow I hope to stay home and make homemade fudge and Mexican Wedding cakes.

Your images of rain at night are fantastic!

The moonsoon rain is a tricky business. I always expect that rain before the moon shines in full.

Miss that scenery ... I used to walk in that watery drench road years ago to go to work.
