    Cable news is reporting another earthquake (7.4) offshore with a tsunami warning for one meter waves. Any news on what's happening?

    Again! :confused:

    We just finished clearing up our classrooms, and now we get to start again from the beginning... sigh.

    Still, no one was hurt and the power is still on :D

    Seems like the summer flight schedule from Sendai on ANA is about to be announced ("sometime in the next two or three days"), according to the helpful lady I spoke to yesterday evening...

    Come on already, I need to book my flights ;)

    In other news, life here is pretty much back to normal. The rainy season is about to start, but otherwise it's all good.

    Sendai update: Tanabata festival finishing up, weather muggy but not too hot, summer holidays on the way. Next recommended visiting point: mid-September to December (due to much more pleasant weather).

    Important Sendai update: the train line from the airport into Sendai has still not been fixed: they are running a bus service instead. No date as for when it might be completed.

    I almost missed my flight yesterday due to assuming I could catch the train :rolleyes:

    Sendai airport was closed briefly yesterday after our wee M7.3 disturbance and attending tsunamis. It's fine now (I flew out at 14:00 and there were slight delays to several flights, but due to strong winds and bad weather in Hokkaido) :)

    Carry on.
