We had an earthquake this morning. It was crazy! At 4:37 am the shaking was so rough that it woke us up instantly! My first thought was OMG-do I need to get Natalie out of bed and stand in the door frame? Rich's first thought was OMG-this is so awesome! (insert eye rolly here)! Turns out the Epi-centre was only 40 miles from here! We live in the Midwest. We are in Tornado Alley, so we are used to that but not so much earthquakes. We do however live right on top of the New Madrid Fault Line. Most people don't know that there is a fault line right in the middle of the country. We also felt a few aftershocks very soon after the original earthquake. Several hours later, we felt again another aftershock. Crazy!
