Since Anna and her two little girls live near the beach, when the tsunami warning sounded, she grabbed her kids and dog and headed to higher ground. Specifically, to the home of our friends Dave and Erin. Turns out, when we had had a tsunami warning earlier in the year, Dave had mentioned that his home was situated at one of the highest points in Misawa. So Anna showed up on their door-step unannounced (no phones, remember...) and stayed for a few days.
Have I mentioned that Misawa is filled with really really good people?
Hey, I had a paint can heater
