hello dorothy, yeah, it also rains here (well i am from cebu as well) it actually surprise me to hear the sound of the rain falling in our roof....knowing that it should be summer already and to think that the rest of the country is experiencing el niño... i find it as a blessing which i also wish that other places in our country should experience. actually, when i am just inside the house, i don't really feel the summer heat/ el niño...coz its still cold in our room even if its already 10 am you can still sleep comfortably with blanket on even without fan/aircon. maybe the big trees near our house do help a lot in giving us colder/fresher environment... good day!

oh, i wish it could rain up here in the cordilleras, we had a shower a couple of days ago but i think it poured only for an hour. they said that it's because of the cloud seeding, but i think it's not enough. our rivers here are slowly drying up, even the dams are feared to dry up! where are the rain dancers? RAIN! RAIN! RAIN!

the effect of el nino is really affecting us! even the weather here in baguio is different now! it's really hot now! Maybe Baguio, the Summer Capital of the Philippines will also experience intense heat this summer. I wonder how Tagaytay's weather is now? It's the second Summer Capital right?

hopefully, rain will continue. but unfortunately, rain dropped yesterday wasn't that enough to even wet the place, at least here in my location. and today, sun shines again at its peak, to the highest level of heat that makes us feel tired, and headache, etc. it seems that we will enjoy beach today, again.

hi! i really thank God last night because it also rain here in Davao City. i think for more than a month now since there's no rain and a lot of farmers were already affected by this el niño phenomenon. i hope more rains will come, although PAG ASA said we should not expect rain until May of this year. but i know, prayers will work.

hi se7enthbird, I can undertand you. All of us need rain so badly especially the farmlands. I fear we can really feel the shortage of food, shortage of water and shortage of energy. Its so irritating really when it block off no lights and nothing to do. thanks for the response..

I'm glad you got rain. Hope you get as much as you need. I think it's funny that an El Nino for you guys is a dry spell and over here, what we call an El Nino means lots of rain!

Hi Dorothy, Let's thank the almighty for the wonderful blessing --for showering your place with rain. i hope we will be able to manage wisely what's happening now as it relates to "el nino". i know in our own simple and little ways we can contribute to responding on this problem!

hi thre msfranscisco, that we are so thankful with our Senior Santo Nino, to st. Joseph and to our Lady of the Rule, the holy trinity which we really believe have been protecting Cebu, Mandaue and Lapu2x. We are so lucky here, when there are news that a stron typhoon will heat cebu,aside from preparing for the basic needs, most of the cebuanos will offer mass in the church. we are strong devotees of the little Jesus. And now with el nino we believe he will be with us. Thanks for the response and happy mylotting again, see you around mylot..

hi there pierrella, we are so thankful here in Cebu that every morning we can still feel the cold wind when we woke up. our house has a lot of plants, my mother opted to really have it and takes good care of the plants, she said this will help us to have fresh air. And I appreciated it right now. The trees and plants really is a big help. thanks for the response.

Well, I live in a different part of the world than you do, but in the past year we've experienced more rain and snow than we can really deal with. It got me to wondering if because of the fact that there was so much wet percipitation last year will this year be dry? I obviously don't have the answer to that question yet, but I wish that everyone would have the amount of water falling from the sky that they need to keep their lives comfortable, nothing is worse than going through a severe drought.
