Earthquakes...

I guess it's fitting that all over the country (and over in Holland) people have felt the earth tremors and I'm wide awake and didn't feel a thing - even though some people did feel it in Reading and London. I know friends in Leicester and Cambridge felt it.

So, the earth hasn't moved for me this evening:(

I was woken by a mirror rattling at about 1 this morning. I had no idea what it was until just reading your LJ. Cool!

Sam in Cambridge.

That's really bizarre, as we don't live that far from you and I felt it. dodgyhoodoo slept through it, though.

I noticed it in Finchley too. It woke me up. I thought that it felt like an earth tremor.

I heard a bang (which I hope isn't going to turn out to be bad news, but so far I haven't spotted anything) and felt the room shake three or four times. But since I live next to the main railway line into Paddington I assumed it was a train revving its engines, which has a similar effect though with higher frequency. But I couldn't hear a train, so I chalked it up as a weird oddity until I heard the news this morning,

I was seriously disconcerted by it. I was the onyl one awake and I was sititng at my PC. There was no one else moving upstairs or downstairs to exlpain the sudden tremor and I did breifly think maybe it was an Earthquake, but they're so rare in the UK I dismissed the idea and thought that maybe my leg had just twitched or something.

Glad to know I'm not just mad and that it was in fact a tremor.

I know. I didn't realise til this morning what it was - I woke up thinking there was someone trying to get in my room through the window. Then I lay there thinking 'Beck, you're being stupid, no, you're still being stupid' when it didn't stop. I had smoked a little so I put it down to that and ignored it.

I'm in London and *something* happened at about 1am I think, but I was half asleep so I'm not sure. I thought somebody had put on the washing machine downstairs, then someone slammed a door and I couldn't work out why, and now everyone's out so I can't ask anyone. Me confuzzled.

Nottingham had a good old shake, thought a truck had driven into the house!

Should get to bed earlier, reckon I would have slept through it...
