    I have a very close friend who is visiting his girlfriend in the Phillipines right now. We messaged him on Thursday and heard right back from him-he said they had bought some extra food and water but weren't worried. That was the last we've heard from him. :(

    Glad your friend is okay, kc.

    We have several families from the Philippines at our school; I hope and pray that their relatives are all safe.

    I spoke to a cousin's wife Saturday night... her family is apparently OK. I'm not sure about the families of kids at school.

    The official death count is 942, and is expected to rise.

    Those poor, poor people.

    I can't even imagine.

    A teacher has several family members missing and is organizing a huge donation drive this week.
