Did any of you all feel our earthquake this morning? Julianne is a sound sleeper but it woke her up. She thought I was shaking her. She said that everything in her room was shaking. She looked outside and everything was shaking. Nothing fell off of walls or shelves but stltoday.com says that it was 5.2 magnitude. It never phased me. you could drive a train through my room!

We live in SE Missouri and we slept through the whole thing. A friend of ours who lives just south of St. Louis called us at 4:40 am this morning thinking it was along the New Madrid fault, which we would have definitely felt that one. It's probably good that we slept through it. I'm sure I would have freaked out!

Julianne freaked a little but didn't wake me until she was leaving for school so I guess she wasn't too scared. She said she didn't know we had earthquakes in Missouri! Nothing in our house fell off of anything but I hear that some foundations were cracked and some debris fell off of an overpass in the city.

Where in SE Missouri are you? I'm from Ironton. My mom lives in Farmington and one of my brothers is in Potosi.

I guess I slept through it.
I think it was 150 miles away.

I always miss them.
Now I'll have to go around the house to see if anything moved.

Suposedly it woke up some folks in TN too, which is south of here, but the kids and I slept thru' it. There are reports that people's cats were freaking out...but my 15# tabby (who sleeps with me every night) didn't wake me.

I'll bet the cats were freaking. I have no idea what my dog did but what the heck kind of kid is awakened by an earthquake and doesn't wake her parents? Am I raising a fearless female or what?

I'm a super light sleeper and I didn't feel a thing. Everyone else in my family slept through it as well, if we even had tremors here. We are in Moline, IL so we are pretty far north, although they felt it in Chicago.

Too weird!

We live in Memphis, TN and felt a little bounce even. It even made our dog bark and he wouldn't bark if someone broke into the house! lol Scary because Memphis is right on top of a major fault line.
