Marce and all of the above…

Marce and all of the above…

As they say… “when it rains, it pours…” well I have had many storms lately, having the slimmest wallet turning 24, and even slimmer when my fiancé turned 25. Anyway, about the rain, yes, again it is wet outside and for more than 24 hours now, it is still raining.

PAGASA At 2:00 p.m. today, the eye of Typhoon "MARCE" was located based on satellite and surface data at 290 kms East Northeast of Basco, Batanes (21.6°N 124.7°E) with maximum sustained winds of 175 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 210 kph. It is forecast to move North at 7 kph.

Typhoon "MARCE" will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon and bring rains over Luzon and Visayas particularly in the western sections which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

The public and the disaster coordinating councils concerned are advised to take appropriate actions and watch for the next bulletin to be issued at 11 p.m. today.

This is one of the most perfect time where you would want to grab your gear and go out riding or do trail on your mountain bike, perhaps camp over-night on top of a trail site. Not for me today, I get to sit in my office chair and wonder what would have happened if I was outside…

Well for riders do take care out there, and for the adventurers, take it easy because a lot of people have paid taxes to use the roads you are using too.
