frost in the cordi

News Central on 23 last night reported about the thick frost in Benguet province. They said that the temperature in Baguio in the past week remained below 10 degree celcius and in Benguet at 6 degrees. This eventually caused the frost in the vegetable farms. We can expect that the cost of carrots, cabbage and other veggies from the north will increase due to low supply. The crops were spotted sort of frostbite for veggies. There has been talks that a calamity in Benguet will be announced soon.

In an unrelated event(or is it?), a week ago I was going to write about the ice storm in Texas, I was chatting with Bay who said that she didn't go to work due to the thick ice and the roads closed. This is in Mission, Texas. She said this thing hasn't happened there in the past 10 years. We had a day-after-tomorrow chat that early morning.

For those who climbed the Cordillera this time of the year, you can imagine how cold it would be in Sagada or in Mt. Pulag. Tagirgir.
