This blog is a response to all members and friends who took the time to send their messages and to know my whereabouts during the times that I was missing in action (MIA) on MyEC.

Supposed to be, my leave should be for just two weeks but it was extended due to the calamity that struck my province. My country was hit by super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda by its local name) last November 8, 2013. This was the strongest…

Hi Robbie, my dear friend!

Your warm message about the typhoon Matmo means a lot. I really appreciate that. Yes, Matmo did landfall our country yesterday, bring torrential rain and high wind. Some farms in the east of Taiwan were damaged heavily, and two people died. We never thought another thing happened last night while the typhoon was heading for China. An airplane crashed as it flied from Taiwan to Penhu, a popular tourist island in the Taiwan Strait, which led to 48 people died and 10 people are still being rescued. One of the main reasons exports analyzed is the bad weather. It's a heartbroken last night for us, especially for those people and their families. It seems that we, human being, are very tiny and fragile in front of these disasters, and natural calamity. Summer time typhoon time. You too, keep staying safe and take good care of yourself. Thanks again, Robbie! 

Have a good one!

Thanks Robbie. We should be OK but will get lots of rain and some wind. I am in the center of the island at the orange marker, so not too close to the coast. I am between Niigata City on the West and Fukushima City to the East, very near a huge lake caled Inawashiro.

I live 5 hours north of Tokyo by car and a lot of the rain will fall in the southern part of Japan.

I hope you didn't get too much rain Robbie. I hate flooding and storm damage. Too bad we can't get the rain divided over several weeks instead of all at once. Take care Robbie and thanks for thinking about me.
