You might think we live in California, but we don’t. We live in one of those states in the middle where they have tornados. And we live on the East Coast, where it snows and hails. And we live on an island in the Pacific Ocean, where they have tsunamis. We do. Because in the last few weeks, we’ve had all of those things.
Beach living? Apparently it comes with a hazard warning.
First we were evacuated when the Tsunami hit Japan. Except we live in California. But someone somewhere thought we could be in danger, and of course, we weren’t going to be the nay-sayers who stuck around if the wave really did come. Not when the only thing seperating us from the ocean is a big field and our neighbor’s backyard. And then not one, but two local friends called. And they were all leaving. So we spent the whole day over the hill, with about half the population of our coastal town.
