For a moment I thought I had magic fingers in my bed.
we were probably only 20 miles from its center.

Minor damage so looks like everyone is ok. So on that note if your a vendor dont think your gonna use this as an excuse for not getting your product out. Just thought I would head it off before it started!

Weird, I have never been in a quake. Glad everyone came though ok. Hope the Rosemont is still standing LOL

Yeah, we felt it here in Lisbon, Ia as well. Rare, but not unheard of. I can think of at least 3 others I have felt in my lifetime in this area.

I felt it this morning around 5. I thought my cat was on my bed at first and that wasn't the case. It freaked me out a little. Either I was possessed or losing my mind. Thank God it was the earthquake.

So if I offer to buy you a beer and I don't are you going to try to say I, as a vendor, did not deliver.

We were still wake at 4 and never felt a thing. Maybe 3 years ago there was a small quake with it's epicenter only 45 miles away from here and we are in the northwest corner of Ill.
I was still in high school laying under an old car in the garage when the loose fender above me began vibrating wildly (I was all alone in the garage!?)
Laying on the concrete floor I couldn't feel the ground moving. (I contemplated I was just losing my mind!)
A few minutes later the news broadcast over the radio told me it was an earthquake .
I realized later that the shaking earth could have jiggled the old car from the jack stands and I could have been the one fatality of the earthquake that day..unless it was those short , robed figures from Phantasm? Of course I didn't buy my Barracuda til 1970 (It was the Barracuda the kid was under in that movie.)
I bought the AAR Barracuda,340 -six-pack (carburators), 3:91 rear gear, yellow with black induction hood..if I still had that car......I would owe somebody $48,000.oo rent for storage!

We got hit with the quake here as well but I didn't know that is what was happening until today. My whole entire house was shaking!

Wrong, Adam! Excitement right here! According to Air America(radio)(and Russian media) what we felt was Not an earthquake! That is just a cover story for what really happened!
Two of our fighters shot down a "rogue" B-52 full of Nukes on their way to bomb Iran!
They had to have advanced clearance to land at the Quik-Mart to fill up to make it there though and this may be where the leak in the secret plans came from?
Yes, this was the story on that radio station.

So anyone going to use the idea of a costume for this year from the cult-women from Texas? The hair! The old fashioned dresses! Wow!
It could be scary! (They were "Stepford"-Scary on Larry King!)

We noticed it in the central part of the state. Just made all the pets goofy for the day, even my 15 year old.

Jim, a B-52 full of nukes doesn't freak me out as much as the fault lines near the nuke plants here in Illinois. We are gonna wake up one day hairless and glowing... with one hell of an acting career in the haunt industry... :D
