Why is it that whenever there’s an earthquake near me, it’s never quite near enough for me to feel it. There was an earthquake near Montreal this morning and I missed it.

When I was in Japan, there was one between 4.0 and 5.0 that was centered either closer to Fukuoka or Kagoshima (I forget which). In Nagasaki we felt it around a 1.0, which is just enough to make you think that the cats are having a fight under your chair while eating lunch. Or, if you’re my host mom, to look at my host dad and say “stop shaking the table”.

This is probably a bit like my looking forward to the day they named the first ever Hurricane Alpha, but don’t get me wrong, I don’t want a big earthquake. Big enough to notice but not big enough to damage anything. A nice round 4.0 would be nice, I think.
