  1. Earthquakes are interesting phenomena. I used to experience them in Greece (magnitude 7). I felt quite safe because of the way houses are built but it was surreal watching the chairs or other furniture were were on wobbling 😊
    At least we knew where these started but in Britain, I’ve no idea where our minor shocks come from!
