Onigiri Factory

Our home became an "onigiri factory." Onigiri are balls of rice with different things mixed into the rices...salted salmon, seaweed, etc. The two trucks going up to Iwaki tonight are bringing 1,000 (actually 1,047!) handmade balls of rice for people in the emergency shelters. Iwaki is on the border of the official evacuation zone from the nuclear power plant explosions. Because of fear of radiation, truck drivers are refusing to drive to the area to restock supermarkets. People cannot leave because there is no gas. We help evacuate people with every truck we send to Iwaki. Only recently did people receive the water they need. One lady in the group has a sister living in Iwaki, who she is very worried about.
