Art was an Eagle Scout so we did get ourselves prepared... just in case...
We do live on higher ground. I just took this photo from out our bedroom window. That's Pearl Harbor and the ocean beyond it. My mother keeps reminding me how our son, Jon always said we should have bought a home closer to the beach where he could surf more easily.
This message is for Jon from his grandmother: "I told you so."
It's interesting how KITV has better calm information than KHON because we usually watch KHON. KITV has been more informative whereas KHON seems more panicky. KITV is saying it shouldn't be too bad but we should take precautions. So we've checked our stock of provisions. Hmmmm... not much. I guess that's why they're saying the stores are now EXTRA crowded and gas stations are running out of gas. We've turned down our refrigerator as suggested in case we lose power. We do lose power easily in the islands.
Ron at Hotel Waikiki has a great post today about the tsunami. He lives in Waikiki which would be impacted.
And I've saved a bit of water because they said the water pumps could be shut down if we lose power. Let's hope this has all been unnecessary. Still it's good to be prepared... just in case.
