Earthquake in Hawaii

Aloha from Shaky Hawaii,

We are all fine here in Hawaii. The earthquake was on the Big Island. Here on Oahu, there was very little damage and the main inconvenience was the loss of power for most of yesterday. Our cable television and internet were off too, which made it hard to keep up with the news. My cable television and internet are still off at my home (but working fine at my office, where I am now).

Yesterday was a good dress rehearsal for natural disasters, such as earthquakes and hurricanes. It is amazing how primitive life seems when you do not have power. Some buildings lost water service too, because the electronic pumps could not work without power.

But the main thing, is that there was no loss of life. We were very fortunate.
