Looks like you are right in line for a hit on Saturday. You might go get some petrol for the generator, plenty of water, and rice...It is still getting stronger.

Found this pic recently. Been meaning to send it to Tim. If you look closely, Tim's house is right across the street from the church and basketball court.

The stage in the area by the basketball court is where Santa handed out presents last year.

I can't tell what's the church, or the basketball court, or the street.

The church is the white building right in the middle. The basketball court is just to the left (the churches right)

They say a nipa roof is good for about 8 years.. but It does not sound like I'm going to get a chance to find out..

This time I am going to start moving anything that can be water damaged out to the guest house where there is a steel roof and still put tarps over everything.

I saw that pic and posted it on a website of mine.

Bantayan Island - Photo Albums

I remember when the plane flew over last year on November 9th the day after the storm, and waved at it as I somehow knew they were taking pics.

Too early to track it accurately yet but they are saying it looks like it will land at Samar... so we are in the path if it stays on track.

It does not sound as bad as last years though, and we do not have many trees left to fall like before.

Well hell....

Just heard a siren as a police truck just pulled up out at the basketball court and they were making an announcement over a bull horn for us to evacuate to higher ground tomorrow when the rain starts..

They are really worried about storm surge especially because it might be high tide, where as last years storm it was low tide at the time it hit.

The official weather news website says it will be later though and shows it hitting us on Sunday.. so not sure why they are warning us for tomorrow.

Looks like a bulls eye again..

This one wont be as strong of a storm it appears so far, but will still probably take the roof off again..

Dang Tim. I hate hearing that. Just make sure you have enough water and rice in case things are down there for a little while.

You heading to Dino's house?

I was just told to tell you guys that you need to head over to Mandaue in the morning. Not sure if they have shut off the ferries though?

I think we still have a few days, tomorrow we will stock up on water, rice and some food stocks.

The weather website says Sunday morning.

http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph

Will start moving everything to the guest house tomorrow so less likely to get wet like the last time unless there is a storm surge, but then it will be underwater if so.

Probably head up to Dino's place again for the high ground after the power goes out here on Saturday sometime I'm guessing.

I can't go to Mandaue, and have too much work to do here to get ready for this.. the boats are still running and the weather was beautiful here today, so I will ask Irish if she wants to head down to the City tomorrow with the kids.

Not sure how bad this will be but guessing the power will be out at least a few days and so will all cell phones, So we will text MC to let her know we are ok as soon as we can.

The generator runs but is not making electric, the mechanic says he will be here Friday to see if he can fix it.

I really do not want to go through all this crap again....
