Who in the UK felt that earth tremor just now? (About 1am it happened). Quite a big one that! I was upstairs as well so I felt it pretty well. I remember we had one about 6 years ago, but I was in bed... at 6pm ! That was no doubt the first one I've really experienced.
The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out.
Heh. I live in California. We have them all the time. In fact there have been several decent quakes all around the greater outlying areas the last week or so. May be time to invest in a boat.
Fortunately I haven't been effected by any really major ones like the SF or Northridge quakes (I was woken up about 4:30AM by the Northridge quake, but it was not as bad, we're North of there). They're still pretty unsettling.
I remember being a little kid when we had a pretty strong one come through, must have been early - mid 70's. (I guess I should look that up). Anyway, it didn't last long but I distinctly remember the light pole outside (about 50' tall, all steel, mounted to concrete) was wiggling back and forth like a straw.
