The plan

Today's plan:

- Watch/read about coverage of the Japan earthquake and resulting tsunamis until my eyes bleed.

- Put together my earthquake preparedness kit. It's probably time to stop putting it off, seeing as how I live along the Pacific Ring of Fire and they keep saying the Big One is due any day now. I've felt a 6.9, and that was pretty damn crazy, so the thought of an 8.9 makes me shake in my boots a little.

- Donate to the Red Cross.

- Write a snarky letter to the USGS. Geologists keep insisting an earthquake in one region of the Ring of Fire doesn't have anything to do an earthquake in another region of the Ring of Fire. My big white butt, it doesn't.

- Clean the bathrooms. Life still goes on...


  1. It doesn't matter how many earthquakes I've experienced, they still scare the crap out of me. I guess it's time for me to put together a survival kit too...

  2. Yeah, definitely. Especially now as I'm watching coverage of the aftermath and everyone is saying there is no food or water. We've got to have that on hand at the very least. Don't ask me where I'm going to store 30 gallons of water though!

  3. I can't watch that stuff. I think about it a lot, but can't watch it. So thankful for all the people who can go there and help. And yeah, there are still bathrooms to clean and kids to teach.
