Out of the Blue

As heavy rains cause more flooding here in the northeast, the real news is a massive Earthquake in Japan, an 8.9-magnitude quake that's the sixth largest since they started keeping records in 1900. The ensuing tsunami is correspondingly huge, so the full ramifications of this are still unknown, so here's hoping that the worst of it is over, and the victims of these disasters are receiving the aid the need. We have friends in Japan, but they are in Tokyo, so they are okay since they were fairly removed from this, but for those concerned about friends and family in the area, Google has launched one of their Person Finder dealies.

I can't stop watching that unbelievable, terrifying video of the Tsunami washing inland in Japan. The awesome, terrible power of nature is just stunning and humbling. It seems surreal to sit and watch such a horrific drama as it unfolded for the people on the ground from my computer chair. How many people did I just watch die? Hundreds? Thousands? The devastation is incomprehensible. I am more than a bit stunned at this point...
