Well, today there was a pretty big earthquake. It was off the coast of an area north of Tokyo. If you watch CNN it seems like it was a big deal but in reality it does not seem like it was bad.
I felt it at my house. Actually, my wife just came home from lunch and I said “Earthquake!” but she simply said, “No.” I pointed out that the light in our kitchen was swaying and she gave me a pretty casual “本当だ!”

If anyone who knows me is reading this and saw the news, please don’t worry. We are ok.

This story actually made it pretty high on Reddit too.
