Still Still Shaking

Got another aftershock last night a little before midnight. It was an M6.1 about 20km underground off the coast of Shizuoka, 90 miles or so from where I live. We only felt a intensity 3, but it shook pretty well. Shortly after the quake I got a text message from a co-worker of mine who's visiting to help for a few months from HQ.

"What the hell was that?!"

Congrats Kevin, you just experienced a descent sized quake, as well as the freaky early alert system that makes it sound like the apocalypse is coming. Fortunately (or unfortunately?) my phone doesn't make that whoop whoop noise since it's a smart phone, but I do have an app for that. I just disabled that too, as there were so many false positives those few months after the quake. I should tweak the settings, but then again I don't need yet another app to drain the battery even faster.

Anyways, I was watching TV at the time, and it went a little something like this...

I wasn't watching NHK, but basically the same thing. The crazy part though - I didn't even budge. I just sat on my couch the whole time, and rode it out like a boss.
