    I am in the UK midlands. We had a small earthquake (5.2) centred about 100 miles to the north-east of here. We do not get many earthquakes here - about one every 10 years or so. A few folks lost tiles off their roofs and I heard that one man was injured by a falling chimney nearer to the epicentre.

    Glad you were not hurt. I used to live in Germany about 15 yrs ago and we had an earthquake. I slept right through it. [​IMG] I woke up and my schunk doors were all open and I was like what happened, I thought I had a party in my sleep. [​IMG]

    *That must have been kinda scary for you guys-- You're not exactly built for that sort of thing. I lived in San Jose & was there in '89 for the Loma Prieta quake. We had a small here in Florida 2 yrs or so ago even! PAYS to think a little about what might be jostled, or could probably fall, ya know.

    Thanks all for your kind comments.
    We too are sorry for those who got hurt or damage to property, but it takes a lot more than a little earthquake to shake us Brits up D K!
    I don't know what the hens thought as I did not get up to check, but someone in the north said that all the birds started to sing at 1hour GMT and it was pitch dark. I can't quite imagine my hens singing. I wonder what song they would choose?
