Tsunami day came & went.
I thought for sure it was going to REALLY happen this time, since we had a “practice” day LAST year…almost 1 year & 2 weeks to the day.
8:30pm: I ran without my phone & when I came home, Jase was in FULL loading mode…getting everything we needed to the cars.
3/10/11: 11pm, 4 hours till impact: loading sleepy children into the car & trying not to scare them of the events that MIGHT happen soon. We drove 20 minutes to high ground to a friends house, where they offered a bed & couches to sleep on.
3/11/11: 1 AM: Less Stressed, kids watched movies, while adults watched the HORROR that was happening to Japan. Thousands. We all finally fell asleep around 3AM.
Arriving HOME the next day till NOW (Wednesday) I am continuing going through our 72 hour kits; rotating, updating & figuring out…HOW IN THE HECK is a 3-7 year old supposed to carry that bag?
BUT a sigh of relief that it was YET another practice day & NOT the REAL THING.
