back in november of 2004, the philippines experienced a very strong typhoon named winnie, and manila was directly hit. these pictures were taken during the eve of my birthday and lasted up to the wee hours of the next day... at around 11 pm our neighbor rang our doorbell frantically. he was warning us that water was rising fast! (we lived near the marikina river)
we watched helplessly as the water started pouring in our garage. at its peak, the murky water chest-deep along our street. our garage and house was elevated which was a blessing since the water did not reach the house. sadly, it did "drown" our car though.
here's a pic of our neighbor's house
our drowning car... hubby was able to salvage it's computer box, but sadly it didn't run the same way again since then... the carpets were completely ruined too.
the morning after... the water subsided already leaving us with a muddy mess and a smelly car!
