    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.

    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.

    I assume this was on the New Madrid fault line? Maybe better a smallish one now than waiting another forty years.

    I was afraid something bad might happen if Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton continued to tell their tall tales.

    It wasn't the new madrid fault. I felt and heard it here in W Lafayette. It woke me up and was shaking my bookshelf. I immediately recognized what was going on then was annoyed that my bookshelf was squeaking, just wanted to get back to sleep!

    I'm in Paris IL. just 20 or so miles from the IND. boarder and we thought the dog was under the bed banging around. I would have been up getting ready to go turkey hunting but I scored my bird yesterday morning so I was trying to sleep in!
