There was an earthquake here at 4am. I thought I imagined it when I woke up this morning! Always fun.

It was too mild for us to feel it here. We felt the last one that hit Illonois. That one was a 5.3, I think. Yeah, they're pretty scary. I've been in 2 earthquakes. One here and one in Los Angeles. The one in L.A was a 5.6.

I'm glad that you're ok. That must be pretty scary :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

That is SUPER weird. I live states away but around that time I had a dream/feeling of an earthquake sensation.

So far, no one that I know of, no one was hurt. It only lasted for like 10-20 seconds and mostly everyone was sleeping.
