The sound unbelievable roar then the most violent shaking I had ever felt. Wife grabbing me in the dark terrified, shouting make it stop, sounds of things shaking all over the place and falling.
Then the silence, check the house then outside to check on neighbours.
Chimney from next door in the driveway, otherwise all ok.
A cold crisp clear night full of stars.
Who could know then that it would go on and on and far worse was to come.
