And to add to everyone's discomfort, there were several blackouts ranging from 15 to 30 minutes duration that went on the whole day. As the day went by, I saw my son getting the inflatable pool out.

I was very tempted to join them but as you can see, there isn't much space left...hahahah. It was a fun thing to do on a really hot summer day.

The sun would be shining in Silay and the weather balmy. But when they enter the boundary between Talisay and Bacolod, it would be raining...and vice versa. It was real
