no waves please

The earthquake in Chile today is awful. I feel sorry for the people down there. And these terrible earthquakes lately have me thinking that we could be next, here in southern California. Heaven forefend. So no thanks anyway on the tsunami.

I realize we aren't in serious jeopardy here, but there's nothing but a pitiful sand berm protecting the homes on Sandyland Road. And not much is left of that, with these storms we've been having.

It's kind of amazing, how tenuous life is on the coast, considering that people have been living here for several hundred years.
