Tonight is going to be a long, long night for thousands of Japanese. Imagine being stuck on the 2nd floor of your house, the first floor inundated with water - water as far as the eye can see - a continuous stream of waves bashing against the outer walls...no electricity, no food, no water, no cell phone service and fires burning in the distance. An apt description of hell I would say.
I'm sitting here, staring at my TV, listening as more and more reports come in. More tsunamis are coming, more expected. Sad, sad 'just ins' about how 23 middle school kids were washed away, untold hundreds missing, 2 dead here, 3 there, 4 there - some by fire, some by water, some by falling debris. It's horrible.
