啸。。"to whiste, to hiss" 。。有些容易了解但我觉得不是那么容易猜。。我看不中这个单词
..river crossing wave...come on..surely there's better words for it than these.
It's terrible, we're OK, I have a cousin in Sendai, and his sister who usually isn't there happened to be there on business. We know now they're both OK. All of you who have sent your good wishes and prayers thank you very much. The aftershocks keep coming and we're worried still about tsunamis, nuclear power plants in the earthquake area, and those trapped under rubble. I couldn't sleep last night, am about to snatch a few winks now (with protection around my head) ...

Hi bababardwan, bodawei, stephenzhu, and wudan
Thank you very much for your comments. I'm really grateful for the emergency assistance offered by people all over the world. As a Japanese, I want to say, "THANK YOU!"
PS. I'm still in China, and my family members are all OK. Thankfully, they are leading a normal life.
Awesome ! Changye, so good to see you..so good to drop in and let us know you and your family are all ok. Our thoughts are all still with our Japanese friends at this terrible time. Take care mate.
Hi Changye - so good to hear from you (and your chubby dog - I almost forgot!). We've missed you here. :)
Glad to hear that your family members are okay.
You may know that yesterday was a great Day of Panic in China - I received warnings that something apocalyptic could occur 'on Friday'. I was told 'not to sleep' (I really didn't follow that part of the advice - maybe I was to remain alert.) It seems people were in a state of panic over the possibility of meltdowns at the power plants. There was a lot of queues at supermarkets even way out where I live. Salt has disappeared off the shelves. I tried to buy some yesterday and it was 卖完了 everywhere. It seems to me that text messaging and QQ contributes these days to mass panic ..
I spent the day reading 'Krakatoa' by Simon Winchester - an ideal text for these troubled times. The book reminds us of the mindless machinations (and immense power) of Nature and the seeming insignificance of Man on the face of the earth. I recommend this book.
