Experienced my first earthquake this morning at about 11:25am, December 24, 2011. It felt as though a giant had grabbed the house and shook it. Almost immediately NHK television announced that it was a 3.9 magnitude earthquake with the epicentre quite close to where we are. My first reaction was that snow was sliding off of the slippery metal roof again, but our relatives here knew immediately that it was an earthquake.
