Burp

Sorry to all you far away friends who are wondering why the posts stopped after the tsunami warning. All is safe. The tsunami, by time it got to Saipan, was about 2 mm in height. The typhoon was what we call a "banana typhoon"-- it was strong enough to knock over a few banana trees and nothing more. We were without power for a few hours on Monday and Tuesday evening, but apparently not due to the typhoon. A power pole had caught on fire.

I was here for Y2K. I remember the power went out sometime after midnight. Some people freaked and thought it was Y2K. Nope. It was just CUC.

Nice. Say, I met some friends of yours in Guam--the Sabetis. Nice people. They said "Hi." I also learned that Farsi is the language of choice in Iran. It was that whole "learn something new everyday" thing going on in Guam.
