Rattled us awake and we hit the floor before the shaking stopped!  Woke up three of the kids - ds #4 said his light was swaying in his room downstairs (basement room) and glass shaking on his desk  - he said he knew what it was (brain was telling him it was earthquake but he didn't believe it)....


I told dh it was earthquake but he didn't believe me - he was like "yeah right". 


I told the kids to turn on the tv and dd pulled up the local news website and just as I was about to dial up the newstation, it came on that there had been 5.8 quake just about 150 mi from us.


I hope it wasn't too bad for anyone closer to the area!!

Wow, scary!! You don't think of your area as a hotbed of earthquake activity!


FYI Paula is in Missouri.

(((paula)))


I was thinking of you when I saw where the epi center was. Can you believe we felt it all the way up here in Wisconsin? although I didn't know what it was until after I turned on the news in the morning, it just felt like one of the boys jumped on the bed and it
