How Filipinos Deal with Extreme Cold Weather

The wind whistles from time to time here in our place. It creates a familiar sound – the creepy sound effects in thriller movies. Yikes!

It’s freezing cold in here and it’s kind of scary to walk along the streets when the wind is blowing hard. Be cautious of hanging signages and falling debris. And even when you’re inside your own house, avoid standing near your door which is capable of slamming you when the strong wind hit it.

The coldness we try to deal with by wearing multiple clothing is caused by, you know, hanging Amihan or the Northeast monsoon. The “cold, dry air” from Siberia, China, and Japan travels down here allowing us to experience winter-like, snowless weather.

And when this cold, dry air strikes our area, sickness may come strike us as well. Cough and colds, flu, back pain – these could cause difficulties on our system, affecting our daily activities. Those with rheumatism also suffer lingering pain when the weather’s too cold.

We’re just around the middle of January and expect that this weather would last until February. And since we’re dealing with La Nina, PAGASA says we’ll have rainy summer months so from time to time we might experience rainfall even in the middle of April.

Take extra careful of your health. If you’re not fond of wearing thick apparels, deal with it. See how many times I used the word deal in this article? ‘Cause right now, that’s all we can do. DEAL with it. Wink.
