I looked at the sky tonight and noticed that the moon has a halo. That halo meant that rain is coming soon; as I was staring at the moon, I remembered Ernie Baron's trivia tidbits in TV Patrol (ABS-CBN)... this halo was one of the things he had mentioned during his weather news broadcasts.

Seeing that halo wasn't too much of a surprise. Floods have devastated parts of the Philippines, particularly in the eastern areas. Three-fourths of Queensland, Australia is also submerged in flood. These are reminiscent of what happened to Metro Manila and Southern Luzon when Typhoon Ketsana (aka Ondoy) dumped a month's worth of water.

The weather forecast at work seems to be correct: the dry season will see a whole lot of rain.
