Emily is SAFE! We are so happy to know!

I just had Emily's big brother hack her blog although he promised to never do it again.  But we wanted to let everyone know that although Emily has no Internet access, she is alive and well and safe in Japan.

As family we were privy to this email from Doug:

We are doing well. We had a lot of earthquakes starting around 2:45 pm yesterday. The first lasted like 10  minutes. Had a little girl in my dental chair so I picked her up and held her the whole time. I guess we had around a 5ish and Sendai, 4 hours south, is the worst. You all have probably heard more about it than we have. I think it was a 8.9 or so and they had some tsunamis. Our base is fine, just don't have any power for the past 16 hours with no news on when they will get the power plants back on line. We had a slumber party with our friends who just shipped their household goods back to the states, including 72 hours kits!

So we are good - just a bit cold. Em somehow managed a gourmet meal of salmon and couscous with our camp stove and BBQ last night and looks like we have pancakes on the menu for breakfast.

Love you all. I tried to call the states but its just busy.

I'm at the hospital now with the computer plugged into an emergency outlet so I won't be able to update too much. We are fine though.

-Doug

So just to let everyone know-- Emmy is fine!!! SO GLAD!

So glad to hear it; as Em + fam are the only people I know in Japan, I naturally thought of them (& starting sending prayers their way) immediately. xoxoxo
