It's not just snowy weather going on today - people in the East Midlands have also been jostled by an earthquake.

The BBC reports that a 2.9 magnitude earthquake struck near Loughborough at 5.20am today.

Did anyone feel it?

Nope. Slept like a brick, and I'm in the area where it should have been felt the most.

It's a real shame, I never felt an earthquake before.

Now men in the Midlands can truly ask women if they felt the earth move.

:lol: Can't believe this was reported on the local news yesterday. 2.9 earthquakes aren't news.

I remember the 4.7 earthquake in Dudley about 10 years ago. That was a strange experience.

I can remember that one, woke up thinking a vehicle had hit the house.

Yeah, I thought it was a gas explosion or something similar since I'd already experienced the ground shaking from something like that.

I remember a few people on my street going outside to see what was going on. Nobody had a clue what was going on until you got up in the morning and saw the news.
