Felt Earthquakes

Earthquakes are a common part of our experience here in Japan. They are so common that we even started keeping track of all the ones we felt. While catching up on our blog this morning, we felt another earthquake, the 15th in 6 months. L feels more earthquakes because M works in a brand new building that uses a technique called "base isolation" to minimize the amount of shaking in the building. He has never felt an earthquake while at work, while L averages one earthquake every 9 days in 2007.
