The power interruptions and damage to infrastructure are leaving stores in Japan’s earthquake area sold out. Gas stations are rationing, but closing one by one as they go dry. Between a third and half of the shops in my town, Sano, are closed for various reasons, not least of which is to let society catch its breath. The following pictures were taken by mobile phone at stores in Sano:

Let us know if you all need personal hygiene items or food stuffs.
Thanks, Charles. For now, we’re getting by because people farther south are sending up supplies to friends and family. Also, stores are working up better distribution that should come online in the next few days. It’s good to be stocked up, which I always am thanks to having grown up in the Rockies with frequent power outages in winter.
I was in Emily’s class in Estes Park. I am on Okinawa. Please let me know if you need me to send you anything. I am sure Adrieke and I can help if you need anything. We are Military so we have US mailing addresses but also access to the Japanese Postal system.
Thank you, Sandy (and Adrieke). I’ll stay in touch.
What are those sad, lonely packages left over in photo #3?
All the best to you and the people of Japan for a quick return to peaceful normality, or as close to it as one could hope with so much devastation.
Jason, thanks for such sensible blogging/reporting. I’m very appreciative of bloggers like yourself. I’m getting kinda crazy with our media’s style of tabloid journalism/sensationalism. It’s freaking out people over here. Oh, if they manage to sell “Rocky Mountain oysters” …HOARD those bro! Let the locals eat their sushi. Hey, stay safe and take more pics. I’ll spread your blog. Peace.
