    Far away hills! Well I’m on the ground here avoiding level 5. Odd things I noticed. Washing machine concrete weight tapping as an early warning. Fitted wardrobes rattle at next level. House shaking quickly after. Cant remember much after as I went out the front door like a scalded dancing lemur in full Tesla crazy mode. Never knew I could hit warp speed at my age. Crying mothers n children in the street. That’s real fear for you. Btw hows Ivors graphs going I’ll be interested.
