Tsunami drill on the sand hill.

The resident Samoa sand dwellers had a tsunami drill that was covered by media nation wide as the first ever for California. The USA Today, the Wall Street Journal and the LA Times covered the event. I took "Smokey," our 8 year old 12 pound Pomeranian to the drill and he had issues with all the other dogs there.

The turn out for the neighborhood was fantastic. It will be interesting to see how the media plays it. BOS members Bonnie Neely and Jim Smith were there to evaluate the process. Mr. Smith said he was hoping to have the same type of drill for King Salmon and Fields Landing constituents.

Mary Beth Wolford was there and participated with other Peninsula School district employees in walking the emergency evacuation area.

We passed on the Samoa Cookhouse meal afterward, as we have participated plenty on that.

I heard that the siren was actually a dinner bell! Boy, they sure do know how to motivate the Sand Community.

That is funny! Kinda some truth to that considering the Samoa Cookhouse dinner after.

I think it was a mistake to take down The Gate.

The Sand People need some kind of protection from Eurekans.
