Just a quick post, no photos, no drama. We are all fine – even Captain Stupidhead – and feel blessed to have been spared the effects of a huge tsunami. From what I’ve seen and heard, the harbor area (Kahului) experienced water coming a fair distance inland but I have yet to hear of serious personal injury.
My greatest loss is sleep – I was up til about 1 am listening to news, civil defense sirens, helicopters, and the police on bullhorns warning us to be prepared. My daughter in Spain called about 2 am, my daughter in Australia called about 3 am, and my son’s high school called at 5:30 am to say there would be no school. I can catch up on sleep later…everyone is safe.
The people of Japan were not as fortunate and that is where we need to focus our prayers.
