Rainy Season Philippines 2012

Monday, May 7, 2012 |

The weather's really been weird sine 1st May, After the humid weather of April, the rain poured over Manila and neighbouring provinces, gracing the land with a cold shower. I was home that day, and the streets became very noisy. Kids played in the rain happily. The heat of summer was so intense "hot" was an understatement. Everyone was happy of the slight comfort the short downpour has brought. The rain was a salvation.

Its been a week now since that day and everyday, it gets cloudy and drizzly in the afternoon. Makes me wonder,Has the rainy season started? It's Only early May.. Last Year i wrote an article about the list of tropical storms to hit Philippines, This is like some kind of a repost because these information are also there.
