While riding home from work today, there was a 7.1 that hit north of here (how far, I’m not sure). I don’t know all the details. All I know is that really shook me up. The other day when I wrote the post about my crazy thoughts. I talked about how the possibility of this very thing happening was a concern for me. I was powerless to do anything. I was riding, relaxing, and sat up a bit when I heard one junior high kid’s earthquake warning signal go off on his phone. A string of other phones started to make the same sound. I had hear the sound before in the movie theater, but it wasn’t a really big quake. This time, we pulled to a stop at Bampaku Kinen Koen and the shaking got pretty heavy. I had my bookbag on ready to do something, but there was nothing I could do but wait…the train was stopped and the doors were closed. I don’t feel very safe being on a train during an earthquake of any magnitude, but 7.1…that worries me.
Take care out there,
