        Never been through an earthquake and will be fine if I never have to do it again. That was very unnerving.

              Yep! Luckily, I've been through a couple when I lived in Southern Illinois so I knew what was going on.

                  I was on the road and didn't feel anything. I heard about it on the radio and then tried calling friends; but all the circuits were busy and I was unable to reach anyone until later.

                  Doh!

                  I hope everyone is okay. No damage out here, but neighbors said they felt their houses shaking a bit.
