Flood in Quezon City | What Else Michelle

I guess no DIY post for quite a while….

Our street turned mini-“river”

Rain meant sleeping in, snuggling, hot chocolate and all-day movie. Not anymore! Now it causes sleepless nights and today is the dreaded day.

Last night at around 7:30, water started sprouting out of our kitchen drainage. The kitchen/laundry area is the lowest part of our house. Behind it, is a creek and when it rains hard and continuously all day, this is the result.

The last time there was a flood was 3 years ago when Ondoy hit Luzon. But unlike Ondoy, we were lucky this time. We were able to bring most of our stuff upstairs last night but the water subsided after about an hour (the main part is elevated by one step.) Earlier this morning, around 4:30, the rain started again and as expected, water started rising again from the kitchen. About an hour later, water was already ankle-deep.

Our dining area and my newly built shelves 🙁

Last glimpse of our freshly painted living room before we evacuate our house….

Imagine how muddy our ground floor would be once the water has gone… And I don’t even want to think how those humongous, nasty rats are partying right now. Ewww!

The creek behind the kitchen. (Nice view from my kitchen, right?)

The rapids

And look, even Morgan is gloomy… and bored… and helpless… hehehe

I hope the rain would stop soon. In other areas, the flood is neck-deep and there are people stuck in their homes. Some probably do not have enough food for the day and others might have small babies feeling cold and hungry. The funny thing is there is no typhoon… Oh well…
