Shakin' all over

Rather amusingly I've noticed that this blog is receiving a huge number of visits today from people searching for information about an earthquake in Leeds.

For those who haven't heard, an earthquake measuring 5.1 on the richter scale hit England in the early hours of this morning, its epicentre being at Market Rasen in Lincolnshire with people all over the country apparently feeling its tremors (although I must confess that I didn't) including, it seems, in Leeds.

We don't really do environmental extremes here in Blighty so when we do we like to make a big deal out of it, with the result that this event has set off a frenzy of Google searches for information about the quake and, consequently, I'm seeing a huge increase of visitors to this blog.

Why? Well it just so happens that in November last year I penned a short post about the upcoming Leeds Carnegie v Leicester Tigers match which was to feature a titanic clash bewteen the Tuilagi brothers, Andy and Alesana, which was entiled "Leeds on earthquake alert".

So, watch out for future posts such as "Erupting Volcano engulfs Bristol" or "Irish slaughtered by killer Wasps" as I cynically attempt to boost traffic. :)

(With apologies to anyone genuinely seeking information about the quake).
