What a Strange Dream!
I awoke at approximately 4:40 this morning feeling like I was sleeping in a waterbed and someone was jumping on it. It was the strangest feeling! I wasn't really sure if I was having a dream, or what (I've been known to have some crazy ones). As soon as the bouncing stopped, the phone rang. It was my husband to confirm that I had just witnessed my first (and probably only) earthquake. According to CNN, it registered around a 5.4 on the Richter scale and started in Southern Illinois. I thought it was a pretty cool feeling, but a little scary at the same time. I almost wish it had lasted a little longer, because it would have been neat to be standing or walking. Another cool thing would have been to look outside at my mini van bouncing around! Can you imagine?! The thought of it just makes me chuckle.
