Rock-N-Roll:)

Had an earthquake this morning...I think the ladies attending RT are having so much fun, they literally 'rocked' the Midwest this morning! Seriously...5.4 on the Richter scale! No damage, thankfully...

Actually, the epicenter was in East Salem, Illinois. But Chicago and Indianapolis felt it!

My first one was in 1987, and in the middle of the day. This one woke me up; I thought the dog was scratching and was shaking the house! Something fell to the floor, but it was 5:40 am and haven't really looked for whatever it was. It didn't break, so I'm not really worried. Just thankful that our fragile beams in the basement didn't snap!

Anyone else feel it?

Wow, I felt it when it was the 4.8 after shock...5:40 am I'm not even semi-conscious EVEN if the earth moves! Dogs were having a fit though.

Last earthquake we had here the cats all raced up the steps together about 10 seconds before I felt anything. Hm, wonder if that's significant? Do they know something we don't, like get to the highest point so less debris will fall on you?

It shook my whole house and woke me up. I thought it was the cat on the bed scratching her ear. No damage here. This was my fourth earthquake.

They say that animals can feel when it's coming:)

Glad you didn't have any damage, Carol:) I missed the aftershock. I was in the basement.

I'm so glad you're all okay. I've never felt an earthquake before and hope I never do.
