It was just past the witching hour – 0012 to be precise.
The world was disturbed.
In the bathroom attending to my evening toilette, I heard the sounds of what I thought was a large animal lungeing at the fence or perhaps leaping about on the roof.
Having finished my beauty routines, I headed off to the bedroom. TRH (The Retired Husband) asked if I had felt the earthquake.
Oh, is that what it was ?!
Himself said the bed jumped off the floor.
In the morning junior asked me if I had heard the earthquake. I said I had.
He said it had woken him up. It was like the whole room was being sucked up, Mum. I thought the aliens were invading!
Yes – Adelaide had a point 4 earthquake last night. Just one thump. The epicentre was located at Murray Bridge, some 75 kilometres east of us.
We do experience small tremors from time to time, maybe once a year. No damage has been reported with this one.
