Earthquake!! In England of all places?!?
We had an earthquake over here at approx 1am Wednesday morning. I thought a juggernaut was going past, the bed rocked, wardrobes rocked and the tv fell of the wall mount in the bedroom! I know it measured 5.2, but thats big for over here. We never have earthquakes, atleast not the ones that you feel.
I know its not big like a lot of the ones you have in America and places, but its not the norm for over here. I half expected Meg to foal with shock, definately didn't work tho. :lol:

oh my goodness! I'm glad you, your family and Meg are ok. I would have been shocked and deathly afraid.

That is scary!

What is a juggernaut?

meggymoo 02-29-2008 12:26 PM

Lol. I think its like a huge wagon/lorry. Or something like that. :D Lol.

FGRanch 02-29-2008 12:31 PM

I see...thanks. :oops:

meggymoo 02-29-2008 12:36 PM

:shock: You've got me thinking now. I've heard the word juggernaut said so many times. I could be wrong, but I think its some kind of large vehicle. :D

FGRanch 02-29-2008 12:46 PM

I just talked to my mom's boyfriend, Andrew, and he said it is a transport truck (semi)

I heard about the earthquake on the news and thought of all my horse forum friends who live in England. I heard it was felt though the whole country :shock: Hope everyone is ok.
I've never experienced one, had to be pretty scary. I've never been to California and never want to go just for that reason. I guess there is a fault line that runs through Kansas and Missouri but its been before my time since it quaked.
