Our first Japanese earthquake!

We're north of Naha

We were getting ready to leave for the gym, putting our shoes on in the genkan when I heard the rumbling -- earthquake!

I took the boys outside to our driveway.  Things seemed to calm down for a minute, then the power lines started bouncing around.

Although it was shorter and weaker than the one we had in Virginia, this earthquake scared Owen.  (This was recorded as a 4 in our city and the Virginia quake was a 5.8.)  I got out the sidewalk chalk and he was back to normal.  I'm just hoping this isn't an opening act for a bigger one - eek!
