  1. OY! What an experience! I happened to call my sister last week (she lives in West Seattle) who told me “There’s a terrible storm, you’ll read about it in the papers” and boy was she right. I’m very happy your family is safe through the fiasco, hopefully life will be returning to normal soon! We had a pretty bad snowstorm here a few weeks ago – but nothing as bad as what you went through (except for a co-worker who totalled his car on the interstate, fortunately he was unhurt).

    I hope the rest of the winter has less weather-drama – and I’ll certainly know a restaurant to avoid on my next trip to Seattle!

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. We had some strong winds here in Hawaii on Friday as well (gusts to 50 mph) but nowhere near as damaging, from a “high pressure system to the north.” Wonder if it was from the same system.

    I remember the aftermath of the October earthquake. Power went off within minutes of the quake statewide. The neighbor islands came online quickly, but Oahu took most of the day to come back…some people were still without power the next day. Hawaiian Electric took some flak as a result. Would have been great to have a line-powered phone too.

    I think, after what your kids went through, they’ll be relieved to be in much warmer weather. Bon voyage.
