Just in case you’ve seen this headline: Major Japanese Earthquakes or this headline: Major Japanese Typhoons, I just wanted to assure you that I am okay. People keep telling me that the weather (do earthquakes count as “weather”?) is really not normally like this, but since I’ve been here things have been a little nuts. I don’t know whether to take that as a good sign or bad sign. :)

Isn’t it strange and somewhat disturbing how much I talk about the weather?
