Shaken!


There was a magnitude 7.2 earthquake today 120 miles off the coast of Japan. Luckily it was far enough away that nothing bad happened, but we still felt a big shimmy! It was seriously around 2 minutes long. Definitely the biggest earthquake we've felt during our time in Japan so far. There have been a couple of aftershocks, so we've had a motion-filled afternoon. The ride has been kind of fun!

Thank you, earthquake, for happening where you did and not 100 miles to the west. That probably wouldn't have ended up being very fun.

This was the first random blog I came across ever--as I'm watching the news after the 8.9 quake yesterday. Praying that everything is ok for you!
