Too far above sea level to be affected here. Waiting to see if anything happens in the coastal areas of the province.

Well... it would be less interesting. :wink:

as usual I come in late for news, I have been busy being happy with my girl and kinda forgot about the world surrounding me but it just hit me... Japan... Chig... Japan... Chig...

Why does this ring any bells ???

Yeah I know I am dumb... but still glad to know you're ok; mr RC !

And Teg too of course...

I just saw footage of cars being flooded away by water and for a second I thought I was watching an image of a cloudy sky; really impressive stuff...

For fudge's sake, when we know about some Colorado hiking grounds that could do with a good randome quake you think that life's not fucking fair :(

Yeah, I'm glad you and the others are okay Chig. When I heard about the quake I was trying to remember where in Napal you were and if you were close enough to be bothered by the waves.

It's going to take more than a "minor" natural disaster to knock the chigger out of the Orthodox Jihad.

Heya, we finally just got power but still no gas or water.
I'm okay but very long slow drive home...(another tremor)...because of debris on the road.
The bridge I normally use to and from work did collapse.
Fortunately, I had just filled up the car before work.

Like Chig said everybody trying to catch some sleep between aftershocks all during the night.

However, my friend was on a business trip in Sendai which is where the tsunami hit and his cell is still out of service...
I fear the worst but hope he simply dropped it or something.
