It was quite a GREAT wet week :) Even though there was a ridiculous amount of rain here in my area it didn't flood much at all. Just the rice fields were affected. The rest of the mission was underwater for about a week though. I'm pretty sure the members in my last area (Batasan Hills) were affected really badly because they all live right next to a really big river. If their houses flooded hopefully it wasn't too bad. Since there wasn't much flooding in my area we didn't have any service to do, we just got back to work after Transfer Day last Friday.
Like you said, the people are pretty used to it. I've been told there is a HUGE storm every year on September 25, 26 or 27. Pretty crazy. They just pick up, build a new house and move on with life. One of the problems is that people always build their shacks on the edge of the rivers..... bad idea cuz it floods maybe once a month during rainy season. It's pretty sad but it's just the way of life here.
