Some of you are possibly wondering if Typhoon Megi (local name, Juan) affected us here in Manila or any of our contacts. Megi was a strong storm but passed quite a distance north of Manila. On Monday night and Tuesday we did have significant rain -- a total of about 5 inches. But there were no winds here. We have also heard in a brief note from a contact in Gabaldon, Neuva Ecija that they are all fine up there too.
