which shook Dumfries and Galloway on Boxing day morning?

Apparently it measured 3.5 on the Richter scale, so there would have been a fair amount of shaking going on.

Is the wall still standing?

There’s a sale on at B&Q if we all club together........

I live about 250 mile away from there so I didn't feel anything. There was one about 4 mile away from me though in 2002 and that one woke me up. No damage to my house though, not even a loose roof tile and the Sky dish stayed in place. A few others who lived in Brick Kiln Lane, Dudley (which was the epicentre) had a little bit of damage though. I think that one measured 4.8 but I can't remember.

I was(as usual)still awake from the day before,and decided that enough was enough and that I was going to speak to my neighbours about the incessant thumping and banging about day and night...only it then turned out to be a bloody earthquake.Mind you,the noise next door makes its a little hard to tell the difference between earthquake and them moving about.

It woke me up and the whole house was shaking, quite scary. I think it was a 3.6

My wife slept through it and didn't believe me when I told her about it - until she heard it on the radio the next day. An experience I won't forget, a big one must be terrifying.

Did any one experience an earthquake on Boxing Day?

Oh, come on.

With a large proportion of the population probably suffering a hangover that day, who the hell would be able to notice the difference between an earthquake and any other form and shaking and quivering?

My girlfriend said the earth moved.......

FE I live 50 miles from Dumfries never felt a thing, but the report said it was only within a 20 miles radious so I guess we were lucky.

spikeychris went and checked "the wall" is as strong as, no unwelcomes getting over this side then!
