The Filipinos spread out their rice on the side of the road to dry. This rice is still in the husk. I think it's called palay. They do this 2 times before it's ready to be milled. Some times the rice goes into the driving lane half way. The Filipinos are OK with cars running over it.

Can you see the Hobbits in the jungle? How about Tarzan?
Ten families lived in the church house on the mission compound for a week to 1 1/2 weeks. About 5 days after the storm, we saw the Red Cross and military helping. A bridge near the center of Subic got washed out on both sides. A TV news truck was there capturing the story while hundreds of people watched.
About the only way it affected us was the power was out from before we woke up until about 9:00 at night. Because there was no power, there was no water. The water was pumped by electricity. The cities turned the power off to protect the people. We had mud up the mission complex driveway.
The main thing, we missed was Skyping with our family. They were having a big family party at Alicia and Mike's house and we going to Skype.
What an adventure.
