(News) This mornings explosion......

It appears loads of others in the area were woken by this but I very soundly slept all the way through it. In fact last night was possibly one of my longest sleeps this year.

This is quite odd as I usually wake up very easily so you'd expect a fuel depot blowing up and being heard for 100+ miles around would have stirred me as I'm certainly within it's range.

I was awake already and I heard it here in Reading. Not *really* loud here but loud enough - even the cats sat up and took notice!

Shook my house
It woke us up.
The house shook..the curtains swayed.
Hemmel is close to us.
I sat bolt upright and said 'What the fuck was that..that sounded like an explosion'
I reminded me of the Broadgate bomb shaking my Muswell Hill windows in the 80's.
Yoshie rolled over, said 'I think it was you', then went back to sleep.

Sorry, Broadgate was in the 90's.

didn't hear it myself (not surprising seeing as I'm the other side of London, almost in Essex) but on the other hand was woken up by my dad on the phone a few hours later.... he'd heard on the telly (in Italy!!!) about this 'big explosion in London this morning and that it wasn't sure whether it had been terrorism or not' so he wanted to make sure I was allright.... fuckin' hell, gotta love the journos don't ya? trust the press for non-sensationalistic, balanced reports of facts - not!
