Preparing for the Journey
We got up really early (4:45am) to pack and then had an early breakfast in the cold restaurant at Hotel Blue. Next, we took a taxi to the airport. I’m not sure what the issue was, but something was odd about our tickets to New Zealand. It took some time, but the agents fixed whatever the… Continue reading
Well, this morning we had the first earthquake that I felt here in the San Francisco bay area: a 4.0 earthquake with an epicenter about 11 miles from the house. The house definitely shook for about 2 seconds at 5:33am and seemed to move back and forth, north to south. At first there was some confusion as to where the… Continue reading
Perhaps because I spent so much time in Japan, in Tokyo and in Arao, in the south of the country, I feel so very sad for the poor Japanese people in this time. I stayed with a Japanese family, laughed with them, ate with them. They are so gentle and kind, so gracious and hospitable. Regrettably, they trusted the titans… Continue reading

This is a link to the data about the most recent earthquake. And this is a link to the data about the earthquake in… Continue reading
With a recent storm having come off the Pacific, coupled with the Chilean 8.8 earthquake and its ensuing tsunami warning, the Pacific Ocean here in the South Bay Area, has been the most active I’ve ever seen it. In this short video I shot yesterday with my iPhone, the sandy beach, which typically begins out where you see the waves… Continue reading
Well, with the earthquake in the Pacific, I guess I shouldn’t ride my bike along the coast as we’re at a heightened alert for a possible tsunami. I frequently ride down by the ocean through an area that is labeled as a Tsunami Evacuation Area.
While unlikely, the Tsunami Emergency Information being distributed indicates that an earthquake in Alaska could… Continue reading
