So, last night was a usual late night for me…I worked late and turned in the wee hours of the morning! So, about 5 am I woke up to the house SHAKING…I mean REALLY SHAKING!! For me to wake up for it mean’t it had to be serious because I had barely just gone to bed and was out cold! So, I wake up and although I first thought I was COMPLETELY delirious from exhaustion and was imagining it, I then realized….WE ARE HAVING A MAJOR EARTHQUAKE!!! I grew up in California and I recall the earthquake feeling very vividly so as soon as I got my bearings about me, I KNEW that is what was happening!! It measured 5.2 and lasted 40 seconds, which is a LONG time when everything is shaking violently!!! It was CRAZY!! Did anyone else feel it!? I heard it was based in Illinois and was felt from Chicago to Western Illinois, to St Louis, Louisville, Michigan and all of Indiana!! They said it’s the strongest earthquake to hit the midwest in our lifetime!! CRAZY!!!!!
