This morning around 5:30 both Jared and I woke up to our bed shaking. I was really confused at because our house has never moved like that before and we live in the Midwest where earthquakes are pretty much non-existent. I thought maybe it was super windy outside but when Jared looked outside it wasn't windy at all. When I checked the news this morning I found out, much to my suprise, that it was indeed an earthquake. Apparently it was a pretty big one too. I was based in Illinois and measured in at 5.4.
This story is a little ironic as I just told my friend, Kristen ,a few days ago that we didn't have to worry about earthquakes here in Indiana. I guess I spoke too soon.
