5.2 Earthquake

We just had an earthquake out here in STL-land. It was B-A-D-A-S-S. It was only a 5.2 (or so they are telling me on the TV), but still it was pretty rad. More info as it develops.

UPDATE (with graphics!): Graphics from the US Geological Survey Website. Apparently what we got was an aftershock of a quake in Illinois--it only measured 4.5 (but was still really fun!). Please Mr. Tectonic-Plates, send us more of your shakey-shakes. I actually hope this whole town gets swallowed up...just kidding!







UPDATED...AGAIN!!!: Just got off the phone with Leah, she didn't know what the hell I was talking about. Apparently she'd heard about the original, 4:00AM quake but didn't know anything about the 10:14AM aftershock (that rocked my world). It's weird because her work is only a few miles away. Anyway--story of my life---Leah felt nothing.

You see, I can make comments like that--because I know they AREN'T true. I'm that secure.

I thought of you...I heard that some folks in KC also felt some aftershocks, but apparently I slept right through it. And, for the aftershock, I would have been on the road, meaning that the tires and the shocks on my vehicle would have absorbed it.

Well, at least the New Madrid fault didn't completely snap. If my rusty memory serves correctly, the Mississippi ran backwards last time that happened.

Yeah, we slept through the 4AM quake. Rusty never did anything for either events--in fact, I watched him sleep through the aftershock.
