The great Midwest experienced a 5.4 magnitude earthquake this morning at around 5:39...isn't that wild?
Indiana hasn't experienced one of these since back in 1968 (I wasn't even born yet). The center of it was located in West Salem, Illinois. There is a seismologist in Bloomington, IN with IU whose name is Dr. Hamburger...he's on TV right now and there is really no point to mentioning this other than the fact that I love his name. It makes me hungry. mmmm hamburgers at 7:45 a.m.
David and I did actually wake up and wondered what was happening but we fell right back to sleep. I need to check with the kids to see if they noticed it (I'm sure they didn't...now I can truly say they would sleep thru an earthquake!!)
I hope everyone is ok...we are a-ok! just in case you were wondering! I'd better go check our porch. yikes.
**edit**just watching the news, they have downgraded the quake to a 5.2, which "they" still say is a significant one. all this news coverage is cracking me right up.
