earthquake..

March 11, 2011

I’m sure you all know that Japan experienced a major earthquake today. Though I haven’t had much time to post here lately I wanted to let you all know that Eric and I, as well as all of our friends and loved ones, are safe and have not suffered any significant damage. We got quite a shaking and currently Tokyo is in chaos, but it is mostly due to a lack of transportation and the resulting tens (hundreds?) of thousands of people stranded overnight away from home rather than any real destruction. Walking around on the streets this afternoon it would have been hard to tell that anything had happened if not for masses of people out on the sidewalks trying to make their way home. The real devastation is happening up north, specifically in Miyagi Prefecture and Sendai, but the real extent of the destruction won’t be clear for a few days.

    So glad to hear!

    Stay safe and sane – I imagine the next few weeks (months?) are going to be quite the ride, even if you weren’t near the earthquake/tsunami itself.

      Thanks. Yeah, things seem to get a bit rougher as time passes these days, rather than the opposite.. hopefully it won’t last though. =/

      Nice to hear from you again! Been a while. I’m doing my best to keep people up to date, but it’s kind of a surreal situation to be in.

      Thanks for stopping by, and sorry to worry you! Things here are tense, but a lot better than up north in Sendai. Most definitely did not wake up Friday thinking we’d end up where we are now by the end of the day. =/
