Well, that was an interesting way to start the day!

Before dawn I woke up suddenly. I didn't know WHY I'd awakened, but I assumed I had a dream. I did what always do first thing when I wake up (after I stop at the little writer's room): I turned on the news. Guess what:


It was a 5.2 tremor down in southern Illinois that shook me from slumber. Earthquakes don't happen much here in Chicagoland. Since no one was hurt, I can just enjoy the fact that Mother Nature just reminded us that she can toss more our way than just tornadoes.


  1. Apparently the earthquake could be felt way up in my neck of the woods, though we all slept through it.

  2. I'm just glad no one was hurt.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
