Whew! We're safe

Praise the Lord it was a mild tsunami for us. I'm sure you've seen on the news by now (though not sure what they're reporting), we are all safe and sound.

I just woke up 30 minutes ago...went to sleep at 5:30am! So very tired from staying up all night in anticipation of it coming.

Not knowing how it would hit, we made sure we were prepared since we are so close and thought the water might get shut off. So we washed 2 loads of laundry, ran the dishwasher, we both showered, filled up over 5 gallons of water and brewed some coffee. haha

(coffee is SO important when pulling an all nighter)

Here's some videos and pictures from last night's adventure. hhmmmm ok so I have no clue how to upload the videos so I'll just do the pictures for now.
Here is the harbor at around 1am.

(though blurry, sorry) All the boats went at least a mile out to sea.

Within a matter of minutes the water level shot up. The smoothness of the water was a bit mesmerizing.

And within minutes of it rising, it rushed back out. You can see how the pier posts are gone above and then very visible below. Not to mention the rush of water going from left to always flows right to left.

This went on the rest of the morning. All the boats are still out to sea right now. It's neat to see them all sitting out there. I think its the most that have been out there at once.

Thank you ladies for your prayers and sweet comments. I'm thankful nothing severe happened, and even though my morbid brain would have liked to see waves come in and crash over (without destruction or loss of life of course) I am glad it didn't.

Did you all see the footage from Diamond Head? Where the reef on the ocean floor was exposed?! That was pretty neat to see. We were in awe of that.

Pin It Now!
