I really don't know about the name change and I doubt he even noticed the weather considering this happens all the time.

We have contractors there (In Manila), they didn't miss a day of work.

Hey guys! I just saw this thread. Thanks for the concern.

Unlike wa-loaf's contractors I stayed home that day. The winds were howling pretty badly in the morning and my neighbor got his car crushed under a falling tree (because the idiot went out for a burger run at McDonald's at the height of the storm). In the afternoon, the storm had blown out and I was driving around wondering if the mall was open. Water was too choppy though for a good surf.:cool:

Despite the typhoons during the rainy season (June to October), it's a great place to visit. I hope some of you will cross the ocean to get here someday. Let me know. The beers are on me.:beer:

Nice to see a post from you Snowmonster. I'll miss your TR's. Not much chance of me visiting Manila, how about the chance of you visiting the US for a ski vacation? Better yet, hit Japan for some skiing.
