All Is Well On the 55th Floor...

Just a quick note here to let you know that Phil and I are safe and well. If you have been watching the news at all- you have probably heard about the devastating earthquake that hit Chengdu China yesterday afternoon. You may have also read that this earthquake was felt as far as Thailand, Taipei, Beijing, and Shanghai. This is no exaggeration-Phil's office building, along with any other high rise building in the city, was evacuated.

Fortunately I was not at home in our 55Th floor apartment at the time. Another resident of this building who lives on the 52ND floor said she felt the building start to sway, followed by the curtains and hanging lamps, and then... she was out of there. Pretty scary.

As this tragedy continues to unfold in the regions close to the epicenter, we just ask that you keep the people here in your thoughts and prayers- many lives have been lost and changed forever.
