Power was finally restored in our subdivision after almost one week. It was cut off early morning last Thursday, a few hours before typhoon Milenyo hit Manila. Hit might be an understatement here, considering the uprooted trees, dangling live wires, flash floods, and landslides that we had to contend with during and after the storm. The effect of literally seeing the howling wind circle the neighborhood, savagely ripping apart age-old trees branch by branch and knocking the bigger ones in one blow, was almost psychotic. The feeling of being totally disconnected from the world was maddening. It was one of the worst storms we had to endure.
