More Whiskers

After a bit of a slow start in the early morning, we had another great day with our pinniped friends today. This is one of the juveniles we played with, showing off his whiskers, just like in the photo I posted yesterday.

I want to write more about the fun we had, but I'm totally preoccupied by the devolving disaster in Japan. Radiation levels throughout northeast Japan and the Tokyo area have risen dramatically in recent hours, and there's the potential for the situation to get much worse.

People who want to flee northeast Japan can't, because there's not enough fuel for everyone's cars, so many people are stuck.

And with reports of radiation levels already at 10-40x normal right now in Tokyo and surrounding suburbs...Japan's largest population center is at risk.

I don't even know if it's safe to go back after wrapping up here.
