00:55 am...

We just had an earthquake! The whole house was shaking... the laptop motion-sensor stopped the HDD... plates on the floor... alarms going off everywhere...

I'd just finished an hour of setting up the scope - what a waste of time, expensive accessories all over the floor. 😥


Edit: news is that the epicentre was 15 miles from Lincoln and about 4.7 on the Richter scale.

More details here.

    Typical - the Brits and the Yanks agree to differ again.

    Not much damage here as far as I can tell, I'm about to check the roof & stack just in case.

    Cheers for the link, Mark.
