It has been raining for the past couple of days. I’m not sure if there’s a storm approaching, but it sure feels like it. I’ve just closed the windows because the strong winds are bringing in some rain water inside the house.
Whenever it rains, I always wonder if it’s also raining at that moment in Sagada. I’ve been there a couple of times during the wet season and did enjoy my stay even if I couldn’t go out much because of the too much rain. I was even there during a severe thunderstorm back in 2006.
It had been raining the previous night when we decided to leave Sagada. During our trip from Sagada to Baguio, we ran into at least five landslides. There was even this one time when rocks and soil were rolling down to the road right in front of us. We stopped for half an hour before the bus driver and the conductor decided it was safe to move on.
Then the last landslide we encountered was also the worst. It completely covered the whole road so we were stranded for more than five hours! My friend went out and took some shots. Here’s one of her photos of the landslide:
It took two bulldozers about two hours to clear the road. We were able to reach Baguio safely and thanked the heavens that we had a safe, albeit a quite frightening trip.
