Crazy tidal wave surges through the Bodega harbor mouth/bay today. Basically looked like it went from a negative low tide to like a 6 ft. high tide within 10-15 minutes and then kept cycling that way with a river like current. I will post pics and maybe vid later...

I passed you on the road today deebo.
You were driving like you were running from a Tsunami.
You must have taken those pictures then booked it inland.
Getting your money's worth out of that turbo I see.
I unfortunately didn't see the water reseed like your pictures.
I did talk to a lady next to your house at wrights beach that explained what your pictures show.
My wife has friends that lost there house to the tsunami in Japan. There all alive. Thank god for a good evacuation plan.
I wonder how many lives were saved by the tsunami warning?
Thousands I hoped

My next door neighbor is a researcher for UC Davis and she had planned to go to Japan soon for work and to visit friends. Well her friend's house and everything in it was destroyed by the tsunami so she has invited them to come here and live with her till things get sorted out.

She has asked my daughter to be a 'big buddy' to the couple's 4 year old girl who apparently totally freaked out. It should work out great cause we saved a ton of her old clothes, toys, etc since we thought we would have more kids. That means the 4 year old will have a fully stocked closet, toys, bike etc when she gets here. The father studied over here and I think the little girl knows at least some english which will be helpful.

I can't imagine losing everything like that, feels good to help at least on a small scale.
When the going gets tough the tough go skimboarding.
