With shock and unease I’ve been watching the news from the devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan all weekend. My deepest sympathy goes out to those directly affected, and to the families who have lost loved ones. I sincerely hope that this hard blow by nature is not followed by a man-made catastrophe in the nuclear power stations which are experiencing severe problems right now, with worrisome news that keep me glued to the news tickers.
Amidst all this, there is a silver lining: I am very relieved that fellow blogger Susanne is fine. From my Belle colleagues, reports are also coming in, despite unreliable connections and power cuts. So far all were good news about people safe at the lab and in their homes.
