    Tokyo earthquake

    Stu, are y'all OK?
    I know shakers are common there. But this one was in Tokyo and registered a 6.6. Sounds big to me.

    It was a real shaker, even here in Tokyo.

    The quake was about 180 miles North of us.

    I was just finishing up helping a buddy do some spring servicing on his ZX-10R motorcycle, we really felt it. The older house just next to us, the old wood frame windows (no caulking in the frames for the glass) shook like crazy, the window made a real racket

    My youngest daughter was home alone in our building, on the 7th floor doing homework, and boy she said the whole building was swaying

    Turf surfing is part of living here I guess.

    Thanks for the concern!
