Odd Weather

We've been experiencing odd weather lately in the Manila area. Today we had strong rains that would come and go in minutes. It seemed typical of Irish rains in the spring except that the droplets were bigger. It was a challenge to dry the laundry under these conditions. Later in the afternoon, as we were driving the highway, we saw clouds circling above. It was like watching a weather satellite feed from below. Winds came and went and threatened billboards ( perhaps cell towers also). Classes were suspended in some schools. A friend even reported that seaspray reached about 200 meters from the shoreline in the Manila area.

Is this Climate Change? Will we still ignore it?
