What were you doing when the earthquake came last night?

What were you doing when the earthquake came last night? It was about 1am something, I was standing on the floor, because I was going to take a shower. Suddenly the whole building shaked for about 10 seconds, it was not like someone jumping upstairs. Then some of my flatmates came to the corridor asked each other what had happened. We all felt that was wired, also a bit exciting.

But later I got to know all my friends, living in Westwood, Whitefield, Tocil, etc. all experienced such a shaking. Later, when I casually talked about this with one of my friends, he was a bit unhappy, as he said that it was real earthquake, but I just took it so casually.

And the only thing I did when it came was standing there, with a bit of excitement.

  1. I was asleep, unaware of all the fuss. But then I’m not in the Midlands, so I presumably don’t count.

    I was asleep, in the Midlands, sleeping through it. I’m not sure what all the fuss is about really, it was just a tiny earth tremor.

    Sleeping. Soundly. It takes a bigger earthquake than that to wake me up:-)

    Preparing my lecture notes for this week (and a long way from completing them). Sad life! My cup of tea edged towartsd the side of the desk and nearly fell off, but not quite. A welcome (?) bit of drama in an academic existence.

  5. Yep, as I have done a bit of “surveys” with my friends, I found that almost most of the people were sleeping, but only a few were waken up; the others only thought they were dreaming.

    I slept through it and i live in Kingswinford, right in the heart of the west midlands, though i heard a terrific story about a guy near me whose chimney pot was loose, fell thorugh the roof and hit him, breaking his ribs and neck! oh you gotta love it. Sad, but ya gotta love it
