Quake

Earth tremors are not unknown around our way – maybe every month or so and the building rocks a little. Plus there is a neighbour who does something involving dropping a heavy object, e.g. a bed, quite often [or falling out of one]. Haven’t nailed this one yet and it’s usually just the once per day.

So it was a surprise to read about a 4.4 quake today because I thought, around 3 p.m., that the tremor was a bit larger than normal. There was a bit of the old up and down going on of the building on its foundations.

Did the … er … the earth move for you?

    The official British scale is not Richter, but a simple binary affair.

    Was the shock enough to make the budgie fall off its perch?

      It was like going up and down in a car on an undulating road.

    It was a long travelled shock wave from the one we had in Tasmania last week.
    It was down at the ‘she’ll be right’ end of the scale.

    Solar mass ejection activity is peaking, causing these tremors.

      Yes, but you can’t say that on a family blog.

    If only Quadrilla was fracking somewhere nearby, they’d cop all the blame.

    W-e-e-e-l-l-l-l, they say it’s going to be another couple of years now.
