Holy **** !

We just had an earth tremor here in Sheffield, at roughly 1.00am. Just took a look at Sheffield forum and it's been felt all over the city and even out Leicestershire way.

I was sitting in my armchair in the living room when the house started shaking. Pictures on the walls were wobbling about and I heard something fall over in the games room. Earth tremors are uncommon in the UK, and it freaked me out. The cats barely seemed to notice but I'm still a bit trembly.

I recall a fainter tremor some 12 years or more ago. The local radio repeated a message from the police saying; "Yes, we know there's been a tremor so will people please stop phoning us. What do you expect us to do about it anyway ?"
