Did you feel it, too?

Did the earth move for you? If you live in the midwest it did which is just wild. I am actually kinda disappointed because I slept through it. Barry and I did wake up at 5:40 to the sound of the window screen rattling, or at least what we thought it was. We had slept with the window open and the cat was sitting there. Barry yelled at the cat and the sound continued even after the cat jumped down. It was very mysterious. It wasn't until this morning when we were listening to the radio that we realized what it was. I think we must have slept though the actual quake and mere aftershocks were rattling things and woke us because we didn't feel a thing, just heard it.

The only other earthquake I have experience in my lifetime happen when I was a girl and wouldn't you know it - I slept through that one, too. Well, that one actually woke me. It was during the day, but I had had a swim meet or something that wore me out and had dozed off on my bed. I woke up to the bed vibrating. I had no idea what I was experiencing. Well, perhaps I will have to wait another 30 years to experience another earthquake. Maybe I'll get lucky and be awake for that one.

Living in earthquake country, I've felt more then my fair share of those blasted things. Be glad you slept through it. I hate them. Glad no damage was done. Have a great week!
