The night Noah's flood came

If there's something I'm really sad about, that's the time when our house got flooded inside and out...

Dated: October 1, 2006 - At around 7:00pm to 9:00pm, heavy rains poured down Antipolo City. Two of the water lines broke out and spewed much water, thereby flooding a great portion of M.L. Quezon Avenue and other one going to Gloria Heights Subdivision. Water poured out so hard that the entire Nayong Silangan Subdivision was flooded two feet deep.

As you look at my computer right now, I'm not able to use this at the moment because of electrical / ground shock concerns. Our house on Mabolo Drive was one of the most heavily affected because the location of the entire subdivision is like a water "catch basin".
Dated: October 1, 2006 - I wasn't able to go back to work this day because I have to clean room by room. The flood last night left much mud that by the time I took this picture of my computer, I already consumed 3 hours re-mapping the floor.

The only human(s) left in our house that time of the flood was my niece (Sasha) and his brother (Ohm-Ohm). Good thing that they've stayed in the masters bedroom complete with drinkable water, some flashlight and candles. My sister was in her Community Service at a local city health office, while I'm stuck near Fortune Disco bar (near, but not inside definitely) together with other people hoping to pass on the other side of the flooded highway.

My parents (currently in Arizona, US) called us in the morning to get an update about the things that happened that evening and the things were currently doing. Much of the damage is the flooring. So everything that touches the floor is drenched in mud water. It would be good and benefiting if that's clean water, but it ain't. That's the problem. The other problem - well, my problem is that I texted my boss in the office that I won't be able to work today / or that day and she didn't get my message. Worst, is that the HR person who gave her number to me - I got an incorrect number of my boss (which she forwarded to me). That's my first time to be absent in the office, the office in which I just got hired and began to work October 1st.

Anyway, the past is past. Now going back on the mop...
