shake shake shake... did you feel that?

I heard a small knock knock knock through Julia's baby monitor and then it slowly built and built and then RUMBLED.. RUMBLED... I woke DH and told him we just had an earthquake.

We both got up. I fed the dogs, checked on Julia and turned on the tv. Yup... fox 2 news just confirmed a 5.4 magnitude earthquake was centered around West Salem IL. WoW.

Some minor aftershocks are expected to hit too. I can't believe it woke me up.

did you feel it ?

yes, pretty unexpectedly

I know I might be considered a punk since it was not super strong here in St. Louis, but it scared me. Don't want to feel that again. And definitely not while I'm trying to sleep.

I was reading your post while telling my husband what happened (he's not in town) and your description (the knocking, the building, the rumbling) was dead on.

YES!! I just blogged about it, too:) It was really scary and so unexpected in this midwestern area! :) Glad all is okay, though!

I live in Indianapolis, Indiana and felt it. Me and hubby were sleeping on our waterbed and all of a sudden everything stated sloshing and I was like "Did you feel that?" and he was sound asleep!?

I work on the 11th floor of an office building in downtown Indianapolis and we felt aftershocks this afternoon.

Our eight-year-old son slept through it. LOL!

Last one I recall was in June 1987.
