In the Philippines—and most of Asia—there are only two seasons: wet and dry. The dry season usually lasts from March until July. During this season, the heat can be almost unbearable! A person can turn on the AC plus two gigantic electric fans at once and still be perspiring from the hellish heat. However, most teens and young adults prefer the dry season because there’s no school (summer vacation!), which means they get to spend more time to relax and have fun.
The other one, which is the wet season, usually lasts from August to February. It’s a refreshing break from the heat—it rains almost every day during this period. The problem is, because of the climate change, the seasons seem to have mixed up and even during the supposedly dry season, heavy rains and even typhoons are already becoming a common occurrence. It’s worse during the wet season; flooding everywhere because of the nonstop rain, which results to power shortages and suspension of work.
