The close, full moon. The earthquake off Japan.
One wonders if there is a connection between the moon reaching perigee tonight and the geo-tidal forces that shifted Japan's coastline 13 feet closer to California. By the way, geo-tidal is a term that I made up. Google it and it does not appear. It just seems so apt.
Looking up at the moon over the roof, last night, was not a scientific study. But, it does seem larger.
It gives one the urge to howl at it . . .
