Nostalgia # 11: The Aftermath

I was so happy to know that the mechanic of our car was here the other day, so I ask him if he can accompany me in downtown so I could practice. While driving, we didn’t know that the road ahead of us was in commotion because of an accident, good thing we didn’t go that way but we went ahead to SM then Matina, then Central Park Bangkal and home. I drove okay only then when I tried to go uphill, I was not able to stepped hard the accelerator so we went down, to get it worst, the clutch was damaged, the lining was burned. I was so disappointed I feel I am the worst driver ever, the mechanic tried to compose me that all drivers experienced the way I experienced. It was already 7:00 p.m., when we arrived home and the rain started to pour.
There were lightning and strong thunder, and the rain poured so hard. At 10:00 pm., while we were enjoying our deep sleep, we didn’t know that some of the residence in Matina were already struggling to survive. I thought it was just an ordinary flood but when I saw the pictures in FB, this is what I found.

Please note that the picture is not mine.
