Earthquake felt in Michigan!

I was shaken awake this morning by an earthquake!
Actually it centered about 400 miles south of here at 5.4 in Southern Illinois.
I hope everyone there is ok.

Mark left around 5 AM to go to Michigan International Speedway to ride in a Sprint car, so he was gone.

My bed shook and my dresser handles were rattling.
I stood up and felt it moving below me, I went out into the hall and Steph’s door was rattling in the hinges.
I called Mark and he was like…O…K…. (she’s crazy…)
I was so glad the news confirmed it soon after!

A couple of weeks ago there was a tornado 2 miles away, now an earthquake.
What’s next?! 🙂

I have a Friday Fluff post, I’ll try to get it out a little later…….(it may be a Saturday Stuff post!)

  8. A few years ago, Sarah and I were stretched out on my bed just chatting before heading out somewhere and the bed started shaking and I told her to stop it…it makes me sick to my stomach. She and I looked at each other because the ceiling fan was dancing around, too. We had an earthquake. Northern Virginia. Who woulda thought it?
