It was all the buzz at the coffee shop this morning. I easily slept through it. The one back in June 2004 a few miles (~10 miles) NW of here rocked my world though! IIRC, it was about a 4.0 or 4.5, at about 1:30am and lasted a little less than a minute. I got to visit with all my neighbors that were outside wondering what the heck was going on.

Never felt a thing in Mississippi. You know insurance agents were really pushing earthquake insurance in the early 90's here. Suppose to be a big fault line around the Memphis area. Felt foolish adding it to my policy, but it was cheap. May not be so crazy a thing after all.

A lot of possible bladder problems here. Better to check it out. Earth quakes don't count unless they happen almost every morning.

The one in 2004 had kind of a doppler effect. It started out mild, got louder, and crossed through the house from west to east - weird. This one lasted longer, didnt shake as much, but shook the house evenly.

I'm sure the insurance agents here will be pushing it - we've had 2 in the last 4 years. i only remember one other one since the 60's

On mornings when I don't have to go to work, I have to get up to feed the cats. They keep pawing my face until I get out of bed and fill up their bowls... Some people felt the quake this morning in northern AL, but I slept right through it.
