Topic: OT: Barry, anyone else in Hawaii (18 msgs / 295 lines)
1) From: Lynne
Just reading the news online (about the earthquake in Chile and the upcoming
Tsunami
in Hawaii) now that my own power has been restored (I'm north of Boston -
area was hit
hard by our nor'easter-that-felt-like-a-hurricane). Remembered that you are
staying in Hawaii
til June... sending my well-wishes to you and everyone else your way - keep
safe & keep us
posted!
Lynne
(who had her son grind our homeroast [know it was fr. Sumatra, can't
remember exactly which
one] with mortar & pestle yesterday)

2) From: Barry Luterman
It is now 2 hrs before it is supposed to hit. Am enjoying some Peru FTO. Our
house is about a mile from the ocean and relatively high up. So we will ride
it out here. The house is sold and we are just renting. The contents are and
cars are insured and are going to be sold in a moving sale or paid by the
insurance Co depending on what happens 2 hrs from now. Will let everyone
know. ,

3) From: Lynne
Glad you are on high ground - sounds like you are secure where you are -
hope you
also have water, supplies (as well as plenty of homeroast, of course, duh!)
just in case
of street flooding after. Hoping for safety for everyone, everywhere, of
course. Just read
that even the California could get hit.
I'm practically on the ocean here on the Atlantic side - man, it was scarey,
but the home
where I'm renting was built about 3 yrs ago, and it didn't sway like some of
the older homes
did. Should have gone out in the morning to search for stray lobsters, but I
didn't even think
of it til it was too late. :-(  But at least I had plenty of homeroast, even
if I didn't do the best
job roasting it this time & a gas stove to heat the water (oh, yeah, and
cook some food, too).
I have me priorities, you know...

-Tomas Ovalle from Sweet Maria's.....wow talk about a chocolate bomb :)

5) From: Barry Luterman
It seems to be all over. It turned out to be not very exciting at all. A
couple of bays emptied out and then refilled but no tidal wave came. It was
just a bunch of strong currents moving the water in and out of the bays. Got
away lucky . Have lived here 12 years and missed all the Hurricanes and now
the one Tsunami. Of course as soon as I move to Portland Mt St Helena or
Hood will decide to go nuts.

6) From: Sandy Andina
Or if you move to Chicago there'll be a quake along the New Madrid fault and there'll be a Lake Michigan tsunami. (We get "seiches," but they're caused by wind and tides).

Glad to hear there was not too much excitement in Hawaii. Also glad we
didn't feel the last earthquake close to Chicago, however Muncie Indiana did
feel a little shake a couple years back ;o)

8) From: Sandy Andina
I was such a slug that I slept right through the Chicago quake last month--didn't find out about it until friends in CA called me.  But drove home from Memphis this week all along the New Madrid fault (even stopping between New Madrid and Kewanee, MO for some great BBQ), and did so uneasily. This despite having spun out on ice and crashed through a barbed-wire fence and down an embankment into a cornfield s. of Champaign-Urbana the week before--at least now I know what a spinout feels like but any quake bigger than 4.3 (which I've felt in NYC and Seattle) still scares the, uh, Kopi Luwak out of me.

Chances are Chicago will just fall down and *cause* the Lake Michigan 
Tsunami, which will do a number on all those little fishing and summer 
cottage towns.  I'd hate to see Sleeping Bear get scoured, I remember 
with more nostalgia than it deserves several summers spent hot-footing 
from the snack stand to the towel and thence into the lake to cool my 
feet, repeat, repeat, repeat...

I think it'll be the Asian carp that sinks us all out here in the Middle Coast.

13) From: F.R. Parth
My better half and I have been in Australia for the past couple of weeks, doing work and visiting friends. We spent last weekend touring the Hunter Valley north of Sydney (fabulous wines) and were sitting down for breakfast at a hotel in Newcastle, on the western coast, when we heard about the earthquake and that a tsunami was expected to hit within the next two hours. 
We stretched out our breakfasts hoping to catch the tsunami from the window of the restaurant, but it was a non-event. One island off Tonga got some activity, but for New Zealand and Australia it just didn't happen. But that's a good thing. 
Didn't get a chance to try any good coffees while here in Melbourne. I brought two pounds of a roasted/ground Indonesian coffee with me, but that didn't last more than a few days so I'm making do with store bought. One high note - we didn't see a single Starbucks in Melbourne. Maybe there are some, but we went all around and never saw one.

It was an older coffee Peru FTO San Ignacio. I am moving back to the
mainland and have been on severe stash reduction. I have reduced my stash
from a little over 100 lbs to 2 and one half pounds. I recently bought 20
lbs and that should last me till my move date of July 1. The FTO is
delightful not chocolate or even complex but delightful never the less.

15) From: Yakster
I've been on a stash reduction program too, but it seems to be taking
forever... I'm down to 30 kilos now (switched to metric, about 66 pounds).
I was too eager to buy greens when they came out and now realize that my
eyes are bigger then my stomach.
I was able to treat myself to a few pounds of espresso after suggesting a
Sweet Maria's gift certificate as suitable Christmas gifts to the family,
but once that's gone it'll be SO espresso or my own blends.
I've just got to be better about roasting more often.
I've got some of that Peru FTO San Ignacio Cajamarca from late 2009, I've
only roasted one batch... notes are sparse but with one day rest on a city
roast I noted "good, sweet, not grassy."  Maybe I'll have to push that one
up in the roasting schedule.

The FTO needed a long rest time. One day is not enough. 5 to 7 days to hit
sweet spot.

Undoubtedly true, but the only notes I made on this one were the day after I
roasted... I was probably so blissed out from the more rested brews that I
failed to make any notes (pretty bad about it, actually).

Barry - Thanks for the description of the Peru FTO San Ignacio.  I have only
tasted one Peru, which is the chocolaty Cusco Canelon -Tomas Ovall.
Your stash reduction sounds both impressive & painful.  The things one must
do when moving.....  Hopefully you will be moved in soon and ready to stock
up again :)
