Wednesday - Cold and Snowy

A good day

We’re back from our trip.  We had a pretty good time, except of course for the earthquake that struck on the morning of the 22nd at 6:00 am.  Ack.  We were asleep in our hotel in Yamagata City.  We were quite high up in the building so felt a lot of swaying, but were completely unharmed.  

We continued with our trip, and went to Aizu Wakamatsu in Fukushima.  Basically, we got closer to the earthquake.  We had a few aftershocks happen, but nothing was as severe as the first one.  

In a way, it is a bit funny.  Two years ago, we were in Hakuba when it was hit by a strong earthquake, and this weekend, we were on our way to Fukushima when they were hit by the earthquake.  Last year, there didn’t seem to be one, but this year…I think we have a 50-50 chance of getting hit by one next year!

I am tired, so really that’s about all the blogging you get for tonight.  Don’t miss me too much!

Until tomorrow….
