You'll be fine, Mr. Floridian. if TSHTF in Japan you'll be just fine for several days minimum, and probably not effected at all.
Anyway, this is a crappy thing to wake up to, I had heartburn and got up to take an acid reducer, had to check on the reactors of course, and now I can't sleep.
My best hopes are with Japan that this disaster is not as bad as it appears, but the horror seems still to be mounting. Let's all do what we can to help them in wake of this tragedy. Remember, west coasters, this CAN happen here, and we would want everyone's support if it did, just imagine!
