Disasters

There was a tsunami warning while I was in Anchorage. I didn’t live in the hills, but the condo (near Tudor and Boniface, for those of you who know the area) was far back from the water. It would have to be a HUGE wave to make it there.... But I did think about what it would be like if such a mammoth tsunami struck in the middle of the night. Woken up by the noise, a few disorienting seconds before the building was suddenly awash with cold, dark water. Going from a sound sleep to struggling for life, overwhelmed by the water’s implacable force, terrified....

Today, I made a donation to help the victims of the recent tsunami in Asia.
