Dec 9: I woke up to hail. Then, after what may have been 2 hours, to the sound of rain. Both times it felt like a dream. A few seconds of wakefulness informing me of the current situation outside. Baguio houses can withstand heavy hail. They've adjusted construction in the early 70s when it became apparent this would be a normal occurrence. On heavy hail days we are to stay home. These usually last for a week at most, 3 times a year. There are tolerable hail days. We're used to being gently pelted with ice. I don't know why.
