I woke up this morning with the news of the earthquake in Japan. My thoughts were for my Japanese exchange students and their families--praying they are all okay. Emailed Miyuki to see if her family is ok, but haven't heard back so far.
There is so much devastation it is almost unreal. Like a movie. Heard that our Hawaii family on Oahu are alright. I'll check later and see if things have changed.
Here, in Santa Cruz we are also having some repurcusions from the earthquake in our harbor. There are boats that are that have torn loose from their docks, boats floating around hitting other boats. Some the streets near the beach are closed and surfers have been warned to stay out of the water.
Looking outside it all looks calm and the sun is shinnng-- like a typical spring day.
