    Now that stormy days are here bette watch out
    Yup...every three to five years.........Calumpit becomes Venice...wherein most of the land is submerge in water (my hometown is the catch basin of the Pangasinan and Candaba area) , the major transportation at this point in time are boats. The battle neck here would be in the dike area...my baranggay is one of the many baranggays which lie on it. As i have observed eversince i was a child the dike area is the busiest and the happiest place during the flood. Ho wironic isn’t it....
