Seventh earthquake – magnitude 4.8


Just when I was going to go to sleep. Epicenter in Chiba-ken Hokuseibu ≈ Tokyo. Only intensity 2 in my area, but felt like 3. Room shaking. I opened the fusuma, the sliding paper doors before the windows, a bit and saw the power lines dangling in the air. I was a bit shocked by the first shake, then sort of cautiously waiting to see how strong it was – a bit like the people cautiously waited in silence at Tendon Tenya last time – and then finally starting to smile while enjoying the rest of the rocking. Earthquakes are so cool! Now sleep.
