Oh my F****G god! That was frikkin' awesome
! At about one am in the morning, we had ourselves a sodding earthquake. Yeah! An actual earthquake!
I was playing Warcraft
at the time, but it pulled me right out.
I heard a quiet, deep rumbling and my window creaked a little. At first, I couldn't figure out what was happening.... shook my chair... no, that's not loose.. Was my computer about to explode (overreving
)? No... Was it a nuclear explosion? Naw, no light flash.
...The water in my bottle betrayed it all, waving about visibly. :3 It was really exciting, and I went to shout at everyone I knew online and at home. Dad was on the top floor, and he felt it. :3 Stepmum was in bed, soundly asleep... and our trusted defenders
the dogs, snoring loudly next to her.
*lol* I thought they were supposed to warn us of it impending.. like, 'get outta the house, yoh'. Perhaps they did in their own, special, way... by peeing
on the kitchen floor the day before.
In-game, all of us in the UK shouted the house down.. all those from Foreignia
just went 'eh?' We also wiped on a group quest right about that time, due to lag on our side. They wanted to have another go, but honestly.. 'I am too excited to play this rubbish now.' It was even funnier that the Warcraft
forums confirmed it before even the BBC did. XD Huge boon for us, geeks.[link]
It registered at about 4.7, and the epicenter was in the middle of England
still it reached us proudly in the South. Gotta ask my friends, who live close to Lincoln (not far from said epicenter) if it woke them up. :3 *bounces off the walls*
