Earthshaking News!

...or should I say earthquaking news?

Why am I up at this unnatural hour? I've been up trying to figure out whether or not it was an earthquake we just experienced around 4:40 AM.

Dh and I were both awakened to noise and shaking. He went back to sleep. Me? How can I sleep after possibly experiencing my first earthquake ever? Was the earthquake only as intense as we felt it or were we just on the edge of a 9.9 earthquake that happened a thousand miles away? You see my children do not get their active imagination from their father.

I checked our local news - no mention.

Then I found a link to the world earthquake center - sure enough the earthquake was 150 miles from us, and was listed as a 5.4 earthquake.
