    • Bagyong Nina did not hit us here in Davao city though… Achaela’s currently in Makati city but said they were alright, water was pretty high in their area yesterday the last time I contacted her, but said things are okay now. Local news here said that Albay in the Bicol region, Calapan, and other areas in South Eastern Luzon got hit very hard.

      • As an inhabitant of a perennial target of tropical cyclones, my best wishes and hopes for a speedy rebuild to the victims of Nina.

        The last storm we had through here, Hurricane Matthew, knocked over lawn chairs in and around Macondo. We will never forget.

  1. There had been talk of the Feesh signing Scruggs again. He fit the profile of the Macondo bench player: can’t hit very well, can’t field very well, will work for food. Thanks to the KBO for saving us more embarrassment.
