Etc. Earthquake in Chile.

A 8.8 magnitude earthquake hit central Chile (200 miles southwest of Santiago) early Saturday. As soon as we heard about it, our attention obviously went straight to thoughts of Lauren.

Ms. Lauren Williams is fine. We are so thankful.

We're also sending prayers, good energies, vibes, thoughts, and whatever else can be sent not using the postal service, to those who didn't have such luck with and protection from the earthquake. The New York Times reports "Chile’s TVN cable news channel reported 122 deaths less than 12 hours after the quake struck."

Tsumani warnings are in effect for Hawaii and other cities along the Pacific coast, with larger waves expected in Southern California but likely nothing too noticeable.
