    Earthquake in the UK!

    Ok the ground really did just move for me! I've just experienced my first earthquake. Magnitude of 4.7. Ok that's my excitement for the evening!

    I thought I felt something.... hee, hee..

    years ago we had a little one during the night, I was surprised at the noise it made.

    The noise was amazing, it was so loud, and because we don't normally get earthquakes, it wasn't something I was expecting!
    I never moved (unlike my house) I just sat at the computer still logged in to O/R! Just had to realign my chair to the screen when it was all over!

    we had one here a couple years back, rattled the glasses a little but that was it. I thought at first it was a jet coming over at very low altitude, but it just kept going and going. Kind of neat, although I wouldn't have been laughing if anything had broken.

    The real questions is, how long did it take you to post this thread after the earthquake occurred?!

    I was on night shift and traveling between areas in the car so didn't feel a thing. You knew which lazy cops were in the nick as they all knew about it before the public started calling to inform us

    'Bout an hour - I had to reply to the Toby Keith thread first! Checked with the kids that they were ok, and did a head count on the pets first tho!
