    shake, rattle, and roll

    We mid-westerners had us an earthquake this morning.

    I'm a tad bit disappointed I wasn't hanging in the yard last night...I'm wondering what that would have felt like. In the house I woke up to the shaking, thought (in that typical mostly dazed state where really improbable things make sense) that my wife was getting out of bed, but it persisted and with the noise of the rattling well clearly it was my teen-aged son stomping around in the hallway going to the bathroom and shaking the house with his stomping. Which he actually does....

    wondering if any HF folk have experience of being in a hammock during an earthquake...

    Are you on the New Madrid fault?

    The quake was on that fault line I think. We are 150 miles from the epicenter of this morning's event.

    I used to live in St. Louis. We had a couple of rumbles now and then . I wonder if you even would have felt it in a hammock.

    Some people felt a rumble all the way down here in Central Kentucky. I slept through it.

    I slept right through it, but one of my instructors did wake up due to the tremors. So it could be felt in the central Kentucky area (Lexington).

    Everyone was talking about it at work today. I managed to sleep through it also. But, lots of folks in Nashville had stories to tell also. That's quite a distance away.

    I felt it up here in my hotel room in Lansing, MI. I thought it was someone stomping down the hallway, but wondered why the room was moving sideways instead of up and down. Didn't think earthquake till I heard about it later. I did mention to my team lead that I didn't want to be in this building if a tornado or anything went through, the way it shook just from someone walking down the hall. He informed me what had really happened.
