We sometimes seem
to live dangerously in the Merse with the scourge of the Fish influencing our weather but at least we dont (seem to) have earthquakes. Unlike Killin from where the sister in law has sent the following message just received.
Just thought you would like to hear that we survived the earthquake. Registered 2.7 on the Richter Scale and the epicentre was 4 miles from here. Made a very loud bang and foxed everyone until the next morning (this morning) when we heard on Radio Scotland where and when it was.
No mention on the World News unless I missed it.
It is reminiscent of the famous headline which once won a competition as the world's most boring : Small Earthquake. No one hurt. Not Much Damage
But try telling that to the good people of Killin who poured out of their houses at 10.45 pm-in some alarm last night. The front page of the Killin News has been cleared -next edition due in a fortnight.
