Earthquake repercussions...

One of my favourite shops closing due to many of it's suppliers of organic produced being situation in the tsunami or nuclear effected areas.  It was a sad last shop, the shop keeper always greets me by name, we chat, so friendly, now she is having to look for new work....  Although I heard priority for jobs is being given to those who lost everything in the disaster.  Hard times for many people.
