Rattled

We've just had our third short sharp shock tremor in five days, all of them centred just under Berkeley, a couple of miles up the road. It's hard to be too cavalier about them when they happen — there's no getting away from how scary the suddenness is, how thoroughly shaky the illusion of solid ground is — but you just have to keep going on about your business. There's not much you can really do to be totally safe other than move out of the area….

Scary. Didn't even hear about it down here. I think Aunty has a policy of not reporting anything under a 4 on the Richter.

Well a 4 is barely anything to write home about here if you've been through a 7 :-). But this is a part of the world where so few people have been in the same place for more than five years that even a series of 4's is novel. Me, I've done the 7.1 thing and can afford to be blase :-).
