Hot, humid post-Milenyo nights!

AS OF this writing, I still don't know if Casureco II has finally restored power to Grandview subdivision, which is around 10 kms away from the city center and nestled on the slopes of Mt. Isarog. It's actually long overdue, and my wife is already having fits, considering that our daughter Patricia Anne is giving her (and me sometimes) sleepless nights.

These post-Milenyo nights are simply uncomfortably hot and humid, especially for a special kid like our little Nokie.

What's more, the adjacent Green Valley urban poor community (with only a creek standing in between us) has been lighted since 5 pm yesterday. An attempt to light Grandview as well went kaput--no thanks to sloppy job by the Casureco II linemen who worked there late yesterday afternoon but missed the dangling wires that used to bring power to my house.

Milenyo, of course, is the main culprit. At the height of its rampage, it sent two severed rooftops flying into the roadside, narrowly missing two parked cars (including mine). But they struck the electric cables connecting our house (and my two neighbors as well), slammed into the wooden fence of another, before finally settling infront of the Primavera's deserted residence.

Which is why I believe Milenyo packed much, much more than the 106-kph winds that Mike Padua's local weather station reported.
