after all

Wakeful, Japan earthquake, tsunami warning

For no particular reason, I woke up around 3:45 am and got up to putter around the net. Then at 4:32 am received a txt about a tsunami warning and a 8.9 quake in Japan.

Txted back with Ob xkcd.

Puget Sound is pretty darn well isolated from tsunami risks, and our house is 350 ft above water level anyway, so we're unlikely to be affected, but it sure looks like a lot of places are in for an unhappy morning.
