Like much of the Midwest, Sean and I were awaken by the earthquake this morning. The vibrations here were strong enough to make the bed bounce around and the door swing back and forth. We were pretty certain that it was an earthquake, the big question was where was it...so we checked the USGS webpage and were astonished to find out that it was in southern Illinois. It seemed impossible that we felt it so strongly so far away. Lucky for us, Liam slept through it...but we were now wide awake!
