Not out of the woods yet

Explosions, fires and radiation leaks at the Japanese nuclear power plant. Still trying to get the fuel rods cooled down. Not good, guys. Not good.

Aftershocks still shaking the country. Rolling blackouts due to power plant shut-downs. Grocery and convenience stores have been cleaned out. Trains are not running regularly. The effects on the Japanese and global economies should be... interesting.

...In other news, we had a bad storm in the Valley on Sunday. A couple of logs large branches went down on our power lines, and we were out of power for all of Sunday afternoon and into the evening. I read comics by candlelight until the power came back on at 9 p.m. ...Seems we got off lucky. Elsewhere in the County, power is still out, and in some rural communities to the south, power will be out until Wednesday or later. Yikes.

EDIT: Death toll in Japan now up to 3300, may climb as high as 10,000. DDDD:
