Then my mom calls...at 430am! She never calls...
"Melissa, are you ok??"
I am confused. "Yes Mom, why?"
"There was an earthquake! It was centered in Dekalb/Sycamore...where you live"
Appareantly at 4am this morning, a 4.3 magnitude earthquake, centered in my area, hit. It was felt all the way from Iowa to Indiana and all points in between.
I thought I felt something. The baby had started crying. But I didn't realize it was an earthquake.
According to the lady on the news, there is an inactive fault line that runs through Illinois...
I am guessing it is not so inactive anymore.
Things appear to be ok. Once the sun comes up, I will venture out to check the house. I will admit it, I am kinda scared. I have to drive today. I don't know what to do if an earthquake hits while I am driving? What if the next one is bigger? What if i am just being a big baby because I live in Illinois, and things like this just dont happen here?
What a way to start the morning...
Now, wheres my coffee
