An Alarm Without a Snooze

The first thing that came to my conciousness was that someone was shaking the bed. Knowing that I was alone I came a little more awake and found that the whole room was shaking. "Oh, just an earthquake, "

A moderate earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.7 jolted central Japan on Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The quake, at 3:18 a.m. (1818 GMT), was also felt in Tokyo.

Couldn't it have waited just a couple more hours? Now I'm awake.
