After the recent nuclear plant developments, I have been asked time and again when I am leaving Tochigi.
The answer is - I am not leaving.
The morning panic of March 15th is over, things at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima seemed to have stabilized, radiation levels are falling, life goes on, we are staying.
Because NOTHING is happening. Really.
As hard as it is to believe, and I know the media has you thinking about some sort of end of days scenario, it's still liveable.
I'll check what's going on at the store tomorrow. I filled up the car yesterday. We got our first battery shipment - yay! - And thank you so much!!!
So unless the long awaited Tokai earthquake decides to blow before Friday (gotta be back at work on Friday), we are on schedule to normalcy.
True, there are shortages as most goods go north, but nothing can be done about that. Those people need help a lot more than we do.
And here is yet another reason why we have no real plans to leave Japan:
I've been saying it since the beginning of this story, by next Monday life for folks outside of Miyagi will be more or less back to normal. This is Japan, people, not Haiti.
