Who else felt it??
Damage was done REALLY close to our house..partial bridge collapse..remember me talking about this? It wasn’t even the New Madrid..it was in So Ill.
OK I’m at work now. The quake hit at 4:30ish. J was up and sitting on the couch. He felt it and was freaked out, so in order to not freak alone he screams…MARYPAT WE’RE HAVING AN EARTHQUAKE ARE YOU UP??
I woke up and was about to say, WHAT? ..but I didn’t need to cause OMG the bed was shaking. I knew I wasn’t possessed by the devil so it had to have been an earthquake. Of course we’re pretty much earthquake virgins but we knew that had to be it. We checked the internets but there was nothing and I realized I still had an hour and a half of sleep left so I went back to bed..but like being on a boat I thought the bed was still moving. I eventually fell back to sleep.
News reports in our area include a gas main break and a partial bridge collapse.
Now…Do we all remember THIS post that I wrote about back in March…how about this one from December? Again in August I made mention… You think I’m a bit obsessed? I think it has to do with my love of all things disaster..tornado’s, thunderstorms etc.. Now of course this was only around 5.2 on the scale so it wasn’t the big one, it wasn’t centered in New Madrid either..that is the one we’re going to have to worry about..the one that can destroy everything from Memphis to St Louis. You can read about the history HERE. Back in the 1800’s the quake made the river run backwards..THAT is some powerful stuff cause we all know how powerful water is.
If you didn’t feel this morning’s Earthquake tell me if you have EVER been in one?
J called me as one of my coworkers yelled.. EARTHQUAKE get in a doorway…
Well I didn’t..I answered the phone instead..it was my J saying this time the mirrors on the wall rattled.
