anybody else just feel that quake??
It's 4:41am and I just got rolled off the couch by a fairly sizeable earthquake. This is Southern Illinois, and I guess we are overdue, but still...Weird thing is, it lasted a lot longer than I would have expected and the rattling glass and vibrating floors were more and more unsettling to listen to as it went on. It snapped me out of a fairly deep sleep, and my first thought was, the washing machine was out of balance. Followed by, I'm not doing laundry....!
I swung my feet to the floor and thought, wow, it's really happening (I'm a sleepwalker so things like this have to be verified slowly), but then I thought of my husband, who works around dangerous machinery and quickly called his cell to tell him to watch out--I bet he never even noticed it.
I guess I will have to wait until later to find out how big it was. Maybe not a huge quake but it lasted at least 15 seconds or so, and I really thought my antique bottle collection was coming down from the shelves!
