It woke me up....but I didn't really feel anything. Had to get the lowdown from daughter and hubby. :ohmy:

PS-Guess it was a 5.4.

  • Angie2BAngie2B Posts: 543 it really happened. The news guys are saying the epicenter was in southern IL, but we felt it over here in Indy. Well those of us that didn't sleep through most of it. :blush:

    We slept right through it and so did our two dogs. Normally the youngest one hears everything and raises a ruckus. People are reporting on a local blog about old houses having rattling windows for 45 seconds.

    Reminds me in the 80's I was in my basement workshop when one occurred. I had just seen some spooky sci-fi movie and when it hit all the lights started swinging and I about wet myself! :laugh: :laugh:

    Hubby said our windows rattled for about 20-30 seconds too. I remember the one from the`80's though. I thought the neighborhood kids were throwing balls against the side of our house! HaHa!

    it's normal to wet yourself in your 80's once and a while. I might suggest some depend undergarments if it becomes a regular thing. I use them myself to save me the trip upstairs, frankly. This sounds like it was a while ago, too. Do you mind if i ask how old you are now?

    I'm about 250 miles northeast of the epicenter. I thought it was a storm front coming thru, rattling the windows. When I looked out later, and saw everything dry, was a bit perplexed. At work, another guy said a lamp in his bedroom rattled for about 20 seconds. He thought it was maybe a train.

    Dhuff was in St. Louis, it woke them up because the bed was shaking. :woohoo: There are reports, people in KC felt it.

  • Woke me up at about 5:30 and we had an aftershock about 11:30 AM. I'm just west of Indianapolis

    I slept through the original quake (my wife woke me up at 4:45 to ask if I had felt it), but I did feel an aftershock at 10:15 CDT. The whole house just the left about 1/4" and back. The place creaked and clinked a bit and that was it.
