It’s hard to write about anything other than an earthquake today, as I watch TV’s non-stop coverage of the 8.9 Richter seismic event in Japan. The Washington coast stands ready for the possibility of a tsunami (Japanese, “harbor wave”), the potentially devastating, high energy wall of water that can bulldoze onto a coast and plow away everything in its path. So far, things in our state seem calmer than expected; we hope it will continue that way.

Perhaps appropriately, the origin of “quake” is unknown.

Our hearts go out.
