Come over, we can build snowmen made of rice!

It's cold, so cold! Of course it's not cold, we're 12 degrees north of the equator. But it's December, which means it's a cold month to Filipinos. Everyone is talking about how cold it is. I've seen people wearing sweaters, jackets, knit caps, even gloves. I saw an old woman bundled up at the market, wearing a knit cap, with a plastic bag over it, and then a baseball cap on top of that. She must have been freezing. I, on the other hand, continue to sweat, but it really is nice. It's been cloudy, breezy and overall very reasonable here, I even slept with a blanket the other night! It was kind of a shock going to Portland, where it was only 45 or so, but it felt so cold.

Also, to give you an idea of the temp in Calapan, here is the 5-day forecast from Weather Underground. See, I'm not joking, it's crazy cold here.
