It's a bit hard to tell whether these earthquakes are foreshocks to "the big one." On the one side, you got people with normalcy bias saying that nothing will ever happen now since nothing has happened in the recent past, and on the other side, you've got people who see the recent full moon in conjunction with the Autumn Equinox as some sort of sign.
Only time will tell.

Your feelings were spot on in my estimation. Japan just suffered a 5.3 about 20 miles south of Fukushima.
Can precursor tremors be felt in different parts of the world before a larger one goes off on the other side of the Pacific?
Let's hope this is the end of it. How much more can Japan take?

I asked the experts on Quake Watch what they think in regards to that particular "dropping" sensation. You can find the thread here www.abovetopsecret.com... to see what they say.
There is also this thread www.abovetopsecret.com... which is about the cascadia subduction zone and ETS (Episodic Tremor and Slip) is the conversation now with graphs. Check it out.
I would be paying attention to animals and sounds in the environment.
