Earthquake Aftershocks 5.2, 4.5
Today, one just now, we had a small earthquake and then a healthy aftershock. It was strange, to get that queasy feeling in my stomach again, to feel the rolling of the ground, and hear the tinkling of glass as things swayed. I haven't felt this since I lived on the West Coast, and I knew right away what it was. Just like I was trained (yes, thanks to you Judy), I immediately slipped on my shoes and ran outside. No one there but me so I began to think I imagined it. I do have a healthy respect for gravity- and this earthquake was like an old friend. It just tickled me...earthquake in Illinois! Woo-hoo!!!
