Boy you talk about weird feeling. We just had our second earthquake in the last 24 hours. Both woke me from a sound sleep. The first, about 2:10 am shook the bed pretty good. was a 4.9. This one was a 5.2. Knocked some things off a shelf and lasted a bit longer. REAL weird!

Do you get many quakes around there? I felt one once, though that may have been a mine collapse. Sure is a strange feeling. My mom and I were the only ones in our house that felt it. Both of us were the only ones in bed.

Whole lotta shakin going on down here! Been quite a few small shakes coming from the same area for some time. They now say this was a 5.6. Lots on the news about it.

Hold on up there Kenny, and if you start moving, let me know and I'll throw you an anchor as you go by before you get to the GULF. Seriously, be careful...

Geez Kenny, be careful.
Oh, and set a martini on the counter. "Shaken, not stirred"

Weird that it's only 3 miles down. I always thought they would be deeper.

No local news this morning. I'll check their online pages later. I don't think we have any damage in Tulsa.

I first thought that it was Steve Spurrier stomping out of Fayetteville:bigrofl: but its the real deal. AM news said it was felt from AZ to St.Louis. I didn't notice anything here but I could have slept thru it. Hope everything there is OK.
