My first earthquake

I just experienced my first earthquake here in Tokyo. I was sitting at my desk and suddenly it started shaking. Not very intense but still very noticeable. Everything was moving a bit and the apartment made this strange noises but nothing fell off. I couldn’t even tell how long it lasted. Maybe half a minute. Maybe less. Maybe more.

When I checked on the website of JMA it was already recorded and published. Instantly.

Well, actually this was not really my first earthquake.

There was another one maybe a week ago. It was in the morning. J was still asleep and I was in the bathroom. When I came out, he was standing there saying “That was a big one!”. I had no idea what he meant. I thought he was sleepwalking and talking out of a dream. It took a while until I realised that he was really awake and I just missed my first earthquake :-)
