Well we survived....*laughs*
It was only a little one, 4.7 they reckon, although it was relatively near, so we got 'wobbled'.
Earthquakes are VERY rare in the UK, so it's caused a bit of a stir, but no real damage that we have seen reported.
Trieste...well, what can I say?
(Apart from the fact that I can't speak Spannish)
We had just been down to make coffee and sat down at our PC's, when everything began to shudder a little.
My immedaite reaction (living in a rural area, where they use huge heavy trucks to haul sugar beat), was, 'what the hell is that truck doing at this time of the morning', then the 'wobbling' got more violent and we realised it wasn't just a truck.
May have only lasted 10-15 seconds, for which I am thankful for, because it continued to get more violent, then just stopped....
Not at all as I would have expected, though I had an eddy in my coffee mug and it had set a rather disconcerting wobble off on my monitor.
No damage here, no real reports of major damage elsewhere.
We traced the epicentre (on a really nifty 'incident' site Strangely has) and it was in a very underpopulated and rural area of Lincolnshire.
(Under a bush in between two houses) Though I pity the poor buggers who were almost sat on top of it...
All in all an experience....*grins*
And a little off topic, but... Elvi, where is your avatar from? It looks really familiar to a character maker in a game I play. Its been bugging me.
Sabbat, Strangely has just started using the Daz programs and it was an exercise in using it. He posed her (altering it to look similar to my elvi avatar, that I had made) and then I fiddled with it on photo shop to see what I could do colouring wise.
Any resemblence to anyone (other than myself), either in real life or fanatasy, is purely coincidental...
