Miyagi Earthquake Update

It has been over 48 hours since what has been upgraded to a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck off the coast of Miyagi Prefecture in northern Japan.  I have stories about my experience, but my experience pales in comparison to hundreds of of thousands of other people around Japan.

To everyone who sent their best wishes I say thank you, I am safe, my family is safe.  We've had contact with some relatives in Sendai, and are awaiting word on some others.

For cyclists out there I can confirm  the events in Richard Masoner's article "Tokyo earthquake and bicycles".

Right now, while I'd like to write I'm focused on my family and keeping life as regular for my daughters as I can.  I have been tweeting cycling related things at @tokyobybike, and more general observations about the situation at @byronkidd.  Until I have time to write more you can follow our progress  there.

Stay safe, cherish your loved ones.
