Just felt what at first I thought was a heavy gust of wind but what then very quickly became an earthquake. We’re in Leeds but quickly got reports from friends over instant messenger, irc and twitter that it’s been felt elsewhere in Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield and Nottingham.
I’m hearing the collective throat clearing of every geologist in the country in preparation for various TV and radio interviews.
I personally have been expecting the end of days for a few years now and am well prepared in the form of:
- 5 torches
- high capacity Internet link
- several comfortable cushions
- a good stock of tea
- prayer books for all the best gods
