I saw this on CNN this morning and you know its funny, it was such big news since the midwest never gets them and I laughed and told my DH that if this had been in CA they would have said "oh there was another earthquake in CA, now onto other news"...but they do the same thing when there's a tornado in a place that doesn't usually have them or a hurricane in a place that doesn't have them. We never hear about all the earthquakes in the pacific and they have them all the time "ring of fire" anyone...okay I will stop babbling, I am a social studies teacher who used to teach Natural Disasters.

    Hope everyone is okay I have no idea what an Earthquake even feels like we don't have them in Canada just Tornado's.

      I love natural disasters! I'm not morbid or anything, I just think they are fascinating!

      The local news is ridiculous! I mean a few bricks fell off a building, there has to have been some other event that took place yesterday. The Pope is here, there are troops in Iraq, the PA primary is coming up, etc. They are just finding people to interview! One lady was going on and on about how her cat woke her up! In case you can't tell, I'm not a fan of local news. LOL

        I was up going to the bathroom for about the 5th time around the time it hit, but I didn't feel it. Maybe that's what woke me up that time, and not the baby pushing on my bladder!! I didn't know about it until I turned the TV on. Some of the kids in my class said they felt it.

                We didn't feel anything here either and we live 30 min from downtown. But I heard it was over 200 miles a way from Chicago.

                  It's actually funny. Working for an insurance company (in the department that sets the rates) I am WELL aware of the fault line down there. It's actually one of the biggest ones in the country. I think what a lot of people don't know, is that historically the fault will produce a few smaller earthquakes and then one huge one. Of course this was many many years ago that it used to happen this way, but as an insurance company we are really getting prepared for this.
