The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore. - Vincent Van Gogh
We weathered another strong typhoon yesterday. Packing winds of 260 kilometers per hour, super-typhoon "Juan" (international code name: Megi) hit northern and central Luzon provinces on Monday destroying homes, crops and infrastructures. The storm is now on its way out but rains continue to pour. Traffic was monstrous on my way home this evening. "Juan" is the 10th and the strongest storm to hit the country this year.
