I was snuggled and feelin' comfy this morning when Steve wakes up at around 5:30a yelling "BASEMENT!!! NOW!!!" I had no idea what was going on. I don't think the 5 of us have ever gotten up to the basement that fast. We got downstairs and had no idea why we were down there! LOL! I was barely functioning. After we decided we weren't in any immediate danger, we headed back upstairs and got an early start to the day. Fast forward about an hour and my Mom calls me asking if we fell out of bed this morning! WTH? How did she know? Well, evidently it was an EARTHQUAKE! A 5.4 earthquake with the epicenter being in West Salem, IL which is only a hop, skip and a jump from where Mom and Dad live! Mom said that she had drinking glasses falling over in the cabinets, some mugs fell out of another cabinet and 2 shelving units in the living room that have picture frames were all scooted towards the back. WILD! What a way to start the day! I remember hearing a rumbling (we had our bedroom window open) and that's about it, thinking it was thunder. Steve, Mara and Micah said they felt their beds moving. WOW. Happy Friday!
