My husband arrived this morning wet and cold because he walk on the flooded street just to reach our home because no available public vehicle and car can't use too due to flooded street which above the knee. I am just glad he arrived home safely,still smiling and singing. I asked him to take a warm bath immediately and wash his body very well to flush out all the bacteria he might got in flood water. I am hoping the flood will gone this afternoon or even tonight because I am so worried that he might walk in flooded street again when he go to his office this evening.

Thank God your husband was able to arrive safely in your house despite of the flooded surroundings in Manila. I saw the situation on TV and i am worried because it's seriously dangerous. I pray that the rain will stop so that the people their including your family can already go back to the usual routine. Hope you are all safe friend. God bless. :)

Stranded vehicles - Heavy and non-stop rain go away please. You have stranded people, vehicles, destroyed many houses and properties and claimed so much lives already. Go away and don't come back again.
Many were unable to go to work yesterday. All of us stayed home yesterday. We did not really go to work because it was flooding all over and we were afraid we might just be stranded because we saw how on TV the stranded buses and cars on the road. They were almost eaten up by water and could not longer move. So your husband was among those who were caught up in the mist of the flood. Thank God he arrived safe. He braved the flood and came home well and happy. What a beautiful spirit your husband has! Good for him! Next time I think he should rather stay home when it is flooded. It was so risky to go out when it is flooding.

I got mad when I know he walked on the flood but when I saw him my heart melt and my worries gone because he is safe. Last night in our area still have floods I asked him not to go to work but they called him and need him in work badly since lots of his co-workers can't able to make it. Thanks

Thank God that your husband is safe. He is nice to have that kind of attitude despite what he experienced. I actually was not able to go to work today because our streets are still flooded. I am thinking to report to work this afternoon if the weather would calm. Have a safe day.

I am glad he was alright after walking all that way to get home. It could have been more dangerous and I am sure you were frightened when he got inside. Well I will hope and say a little prayer for the waters to go down so that he will not have to walk through it to get to and from his work.

What a sweet man to be still smiling and singing despite having to walk in flooded water!!We have only had real serious flooding where I live once and it was horrible. I walked in it too, trying to help my daughter who was maybe 10 or 11 at the time, deliver her papers. We got some of them delivered but when it got up to almost her waist, we called it quits. And do you know that there were a couple of older ladies who called her boss and complained that she hadn't delivered the paper!!! We went out a couple of days later when the water had subsided some. At one point it was up to my waist and I'm 5'7! One lady actually started yelling at us and telling us there was no excuse why we should not have delivered her paper! Anyway, your husband sounds like a real sweet man.

You're right he very sweet and a happy person. I also asked him why he smile and sing despite of everything but according to him, he better to sing and smile than to feel the cold that makes him chills. Thank you for sharing!
