We felt an earthquake here yesterday afternoon surprise but, luckily, the earth-shattering bit was 50 miles south of us and about 5 miles down. I was sitting at my desk in my study creating some new pages for the web site when I heard a quiet, low rumble and I could feel the house vibrating. I wouldn't go so far as to say the house shook, it lasted for about 15 seconds and measured 4.4 on the Richter Scale. Rather minor really.

Living as we do in a quiet Welsh market town one doesn't expect earthquakes although they do occur very, very occasionally. I suppose if I had been Elvis Presley I might have said "I'm all shook up". angry
