Earthquakes, tsunami, nuclear meltdowns and now tornadoes?
I don't think I need to mention the horrible disasters that the huge earthquake carried with it, enough to say that the aftermath is i no way over with the Fukushima plant situation still being very serious and stronger aftershocks still rearing their ugly face from time to time still scaring the hell out of me when I'm in the office.
But things have been reasonably calm lately, only one or two stronger ones during the weekend and calm so far today and yesterday in the Tokyo area. As I was taking the train to work today I realized that the train was quite delayed (or rather, the train I usually take was quite delayed, I happened to enter another delayed train that came in just the same time as my regular train, quite confusing). It was quite rainy in the morning, but nothing more than some shitty weather I thought, but as I rode the train they announced in the speakers "due to a warning for tornadoes we will be running the train at reduced speed".
Seriously, first earthquakes, tsunami, nuclear meltdowns and now tornadoes?! What's next? A plague of cockroaches? I don't even want to think of what the typhoon season will be like this year...
