I heard it very distinctly. There again living in a field there is little else to mask any such noise so anything out of the ordinary stands out that bit more clearly. It was only a rumble, I initially thought a vehicle was going past but the road was empty.

We had some thunder earlier and I thought it was SWMBO putting out the bin for tomorrow morning.

Over here, it depends each year, which way storms go. as they follow rivers. Been the other way for last 6 years. Now its our turn. We have had 10 in last 3 days, and another one due tonight. Very pretty, if you like looking at Lightning. Our kitchen wall, is a mass of lightning conductors, as we are very exposed. john

Folkestone had a 4.2 magnitude earthquake, rumble, shudder what ever you prefer to call it back in 2012. Caused quite a lot of damage to the town.
Although we are about 20 miles away we felt it go under our house. It felt like a wave passing under us, very strange feeling made worse by the fact there was no noise.
