I hope everyone is safe...

Quick update:
If you haven't heard yet, there was an 8.8 earthquake in Chile (my prayers are with those who have been affected) yesterday, which has caused a Tsunami Warning to the state of Hawaii.  The tsunami is expected to hit the Big Island (Hilo) at 11:05am. 

The weather today is pristine.  It's just pass 10:00am and still very calm.  I really hope the Tsunami doesn't reach us and our state in left unharmed.  We've been watching the news since 5am.... and the sirens have been going off since 6am.  We also ran to the market to stock up on a few things... I was dumbfounded as to what to get... I can't imagine eating food "right out of the can", but if worse came to worse, I guess that would need to be done.  We are fortunate enough that we live on higher ground.  I pray that everyone will remain safe today and pray that the tsunami does not reach us.

***Took quick snaps while at the check out stand at the market this morning.  This is a strange first; spam + macnuts = only in Hawaii (I didn't buy them)...


***At Mamang's house... My BFF asked if I could go check up on her grandma.  Mamang (that's what she calls her) was doing fine.  She didn't seemed fazed at all, totally calm.  I'm glad.

Gonna go watch the news..  I hope all of you are safe today.

Love, S
