There was an earthquake here in the prefecture on Friday. We were about 20 miles from the epicenter, and thankfully, it wasn’t devastating overall.
As a person that has never experienced an earthquake (that wasn’t above a ground tremor) it was a shortly terrifying experience, because once you’re in your safe position, you’re just waiting with the concious thought that the earth is literally moving under your feet.
Interesting day that I will add to the list of my life experiences.
PS: I lived in Utah during 5th grade, and earthquake drills were a common occurence.
