    Dude...It shook really good here this morning at 4:36 am. It was centered about 20 miles south of us in West Salem IL. The quake was 3.1 miles deep and a 5.4 on the scale...Woke my butt up, and knocked a few things off the shelf in the hall closet, and really rattled the pictures on the walls

    Yes, we felt it here on the west side of Indy. The dog freaked out and my daughter came running in and jumped in bed with us. Pretty weird! I hear they have some minor damage reported in louisville.

    I didn't feel shit. I was sleeping. I carry earthquake insurance because that New Madrid fault has been way overdue for a "Big One".

    I have been in 4 earthquakes and heven't felt any of them.

    Mr Bones made it to Texas and Detroit but for some reason he was shy and didn't get out of the car.
