I just heard about it on the radio. It was 5.0 on the Richter scale and although reports state that things fell off shelves and lights flickered and some people panicked - no real damage was sustained. I expect that people were thinking of what had happened to poor Japan Evidently it was felt across the Island but I did not feel a thing. And no, I wasn't asleep either. When the daughter called and asked if I was all right I said yes and asked her if she was alright. But I didn't know that she was talking about an earthquake Earthquakes are scary when you realise that the Island is only 120 miles long and 44 miles wide at the biggest point. The biggest earthquake that I experienced was when I was at a funeral some years ago. We were outside of the Church and the coffin was being lowered into the ground when the quake started. Some people felt that judgement day had come and were looking up in the sky for Jesus and others were weeping and wailing. My husband told me not to laugh as I have this nervous tendency to laugh at inappropriate moments and so I didn't but looked up in the sky for the Rapture. Apologies to my Fundamentalist friends; I respect your beliefs so please respect mine. I really did join the others in looking for the Rapture. So are there earthquakes where you live?
