    According to John Kettley (the weatherman who's just been on Five Live) it's nothing to do with the weather - but it's the biggest earthquake the UK has experienced in something like 20 years. Felt all over the country apparently .. but more so in the north and east.

    I think I'm going to bed now. I'm spooked too!! *lol*

    It's already on BBC Teletext. If Cat hadn't posted about it, I'd probably not have even realised what it was until I woke up and saw the news :rolleyes:

    Didn't feel a thing.

    The last big one that they are talking about was here in North Wales and I didn't feel that either :(. It did knock my brother off his stool whilst he was eating his cornflakes though!!!!
