PAGASA declares “no summer in the Philippines”

The arrival of March marks the point of summer.

With the pandemic COVID-19 and the title, you’re very fortunate if you haven’t planned anything for your next summer getaway. If you do, it’s time to re-think and re-align your priorities. It’s now or never.

Having been born and raised in the Philippines, you are already aware that we only have two seasons: wet and dry. The wet season starts in June and ends in November. On the other hand, the dry season is from December to May.

However, according to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA), “there is no ‘summer’ in the Philippines.” Technically speaking, we are to experience a “hot dry season.”

Sure, ‘summer’ sounds cool, but we’re not having it. So, it’s more appropriate to say “dry season.” Technically speaking, this same thing goes with saying ‘typhoons’ because we’re not having ‘cyclones’ or ‘hurricanes.’

Regardless of all the technicalities, I guess the ambiguous statement is very much appropriate to our crisis today because, we’re definitely not having summer – we are staying indoors. #TravelCanWait
