    Is everyone okay?

    We had a rather interesting little earthquake run through here a few minutes back... I'm in Wentzville, MO, about 45 miles west of St. Louis.

    In Evansville, felt it here too. An interesting way to wake up in the morning, no need for the alarm clock.

    I am in a hotel in Louisville, KY and was in a half-awake/half-dreaming state when I felt the earth shake a bit.

    In a fog I was trying to remember if their were rail-road tracks nearby but didn't think there were.

    I thought I was dreaming the whole thing, but perhaps I was not.

    I took a shower and then got dressed for work. No looting for me thank you.:evil:

    Should I have felt it in Chicago? If so, that's the second earthquake I've slept through.

    I think Chicago is a little far. Reports here say that the folks in fort wayne did not feel it. I think Chicago is about the same distance from the epicenter(sp).

    Our alarms were about to go off. No need for them today. It helped the G/F this morning, she is usualy late for work. Not today...lol

    We got it here in Nashvegas. First one I ever experienced. Our parakeet was going wild, screeching & flapping about thirty seconds before the rumble began. It was much louder and laster longer than I would have expected. Kinda cool if one is not near the epicenter & danger. :eek:

    Noticed it here in Cincinnati. Woke me up just before the alarm went off. House creaked like people were walking around in all the rooms. No zombies...yet.

    oh yeah, we felt it up here at purdue. some people did sleep thought it, but i sure didnt. people living in cheap houses got woken up and thought the world was over. come to think of it, i wonder if my house back home is still standing. it moved with the breeze.

    so, what gun to combat earthquakes? you have to start a wave equal and perfectly out of time to that of the quake.
