Well, as has become a rather disturbing trend here in Japan, today we had rather a strong quake. Estimates seem to place it at about 5-6.5 here in Tokyo, and I can tell you that even though I was on the ground floor of a building, you could feel the building shake quite hard.

Friends on the 22nd floor of the Maru building said the building moved *very* noticeably. I guess the silver lining is that this is the faults letting out energy gradually rather than as a huge event. Let’s hope. (Another link here.)
