All's well with us

Just a quick post to let you know that all is well here, following the disasters in Northern Japan.

Luckily for us we are very far from the earthquake and tsunami area, and are not affected at all. The news from that area is terrible though, with entire towns washed away or burnt to the ground, trains missing (swept away?), a nuclear power plant venting to prevent meltdown and huge aftershocks continuing through the night.

We don't usually have the TV on during the day, so the first I knew of it all was when Dad phoned me from the UK to see if everything was OK! We do live near the sea, but it is the Sea of Japan not the Pacific coast, and tidal waves are virtually unheard of here. We did get a low-level tsunami warning at 5.30 this morning, but it's nothing to worry about and everything is going on here as normal. I just wish I could say the same for all the poor people in the north though...
